Publisher's Summary

The Anti-Capitalistic Mentality by Austrian School economist and libertarian thinker Ludwig von Mises is an investigation into the psychological roots of the anti-capitalistic stance that is widespread in segments of the general population of the capitalist world. Von Mises suggests various reasons for this mentality, primarily his claim that free competition in the market economy allows no excuses of one's failures. Rather, he argues, it creates great incentive for one's desire for improvement and greater effort to succeed, as well as a greater reward for that success.

It was a shock to my system

I read this important and interesting book years ago. One would think that a psychiatrist or psychologist would have made this diagnosis of 'the individual American. The anti capitalist mentality is nearly unanimous among Americans. I thought i was above resentment and envy but his work forced me to deal with a real problem that was in my life for years. And it kept me from being a better more self responsible individual. Earl Nightingale book from forty years ago explained the problem but from a different point of view. Von Mises adds a better understanding of a thought process that keeps a man from doing better and enjoying life. Americans tend to blame others for their own lack of success. I catch myself with a resentment of some one's success compared to mine now and then but quickly remind myself that is not helpful. It just creates an excuse to not perform better at life. Was looking forward to hearing his book to get a fresh new perspective and a different way to learn that for me works better than reading. However this audio fails miserably. It is worth doing. And hope someone else can take this on.or the performer does it over and give us a copy or I think i will ask for my money back.

The recording is unlistenable!!!

The recording sounds like the narrator is in a cave with a horrible recording device! Deleting from my library!

Audio is garbage

I would like a refund because it sounds like this book is being read by the ghost of Jacob Marley. The intro is fine but once it cuts to the book... pure trash.

Distorted audio, can’t hear much!

The audio got worse as the book progressed.

My other audio books play fine.

Until this is resolved, I’d avoid this and read the book, which is fantastic!

Terrible audio quality

This is a book I was interested in reading/listening to, but I couldn't even make it halfway through. The audio quality is so bad you can barely understand what is being said. Don't waste your money or a credit with this one. Buy the actual book or find a better recording elsewhere.
