Nobel laureate Friedrich Hayek once warned “that the economist who is only an economist is likely to become a nuisance if not a positive danger.” No economist was so acutely aware of what a dangerous game he was playing as Wilhelm Röpke. His combined commitments to sound economic analysis, the importance of social institutions, and the moral and religious framework of the Christian tradition made him a unique figure in the history of economic and social thought. This anthology, through carefully chosen selections from Röpke’s writings, introduces the contemporary reader to this most humane economist and theorist of the free and virtuous society.
