Quote of the Day (April 7th, 2015)

Today's quote of the day comes from the preface of Ludwig von Mises' book  Interventionism: An Economic Analysis.

As a rule, capitalism is blamed for the undesired effects of a policy directed at its elimination. The man who sips his morning coffee does not say, “Capitalism has brought this beverage to my breakfast table.”
But when he reads in the papers that the government of Brazil has ordered part of the coffee crop destroyed, he does not say, “That is government for you;” he exclaims, “That is capitalism for you.”
