Property and Freedom Podcast, Episode 041.
This lecture is from the 2009 meeting of the Property and Freedom Society: “From the Malthusian Trap to the Industrial Revolution: An Explanation of Social Evolution,” by Hans-Hermann Hoppe (Germany/Turkey). PFS 2009 Playlist.
Note that the audio quality for the 2006 and 2008 meetings (there were no recordings for the 2007 meeting) was poor and has been improved as much as possible by Podsworth Media. Audio for the 2009 meeting was better but has also been tweaked a bit by Podsworth. The audio quality improves significantly starting with the 2010 meeting.
Professor Hoppe’s chapter, “From the Malthusian Trap to the Industrial Revolution: An Explanation of Social Evolution,” in both The Great Fiction, and in A Short History of Man: Progress and Decline, was initially presented in 2009 at the Property and Freedom Society.
