  • Genre: Politics & Current Events


Through this book the author challenges common assumptions; his work marks initiation of the "progressive movement" leading to modern liberalism (as opposed to classical liberalism); he has some exceptional insights on changes in production between early and modern (1907) capitalistic systems (emancipation was for him a business-driven cost savings, as hiring freed labor was cheaper than buying slaves and housing them) and his arguments against the Founders.
