The Mystery of Banking, Murray N. Rothbard
Planned Chaos by Ludwig von Mises PDF download “History will call our age the age of the dictators and tyrants. We have witnessed in the last years the fall of two of these inflated supermen. But the spirit which raised these knaves to autocratic power survives. It permeates textbooks and periodicals, it speaks through the mouths of teachers and politicians, it manifests itself in party programmes and in plays and novels. As long as this spirit prevails there cannot be any hope of durable peace, of democracy, of the preservation of freedom or of a steady improvement in the nation’s economic well-being.”

Perpetual Growth – The Next Dragon Facing Biology Teachers, The Social Contract, Fall, 1994. PDF “The idea of perpetual growth is embraced with religious fervor by mainstream economists and other worshipers of ‘Progress’ – the material sort of progress, that is… Our students are society’s next generation-inpower. We owe it to them, to society at large, and to posterity to help students build their expectations on a realistic basis. Exponential growth needs to be seen as a severely time-limited process, for which costs must be paid. Growth is ultimately limited by the environment, a truth that ecologists encapsulate in the concept of ‘carrying capacity’.”
