Review (1908) of Gustave de Molinari’s
Society of the Future (1899)

by the Political Science Quarterly

GM-SF.1 It is difficult to see any particular reason for the translation of M. G. de Molinari’s La Société future (The Society of Tomorrow, New York, G. P. Putnam’s Sons, 1904; xlviii, 230 pp.), for the beatific visions of the millennium through free trade and laissez faire are not unknown to the English-speaking world. There is nothing new or illuminating about the theory that the “population is limited by the means of subsistence” or that “capital is the product of thrift.” Still more inexplicable than the translation of the work is the addition of a collectivist introduction by Mr. Hodgson Pratt.
