Menos Marx! Mais Mises!

This was one of the anthems of the revolt in Brazil which brought down the corrupt, Marxist and crony capitalist Dilma Rousseff.  We documented the uprising as it happened. Less Marx! More Mises! (As in Ludwig von Mises the godfather of modern Austrian free market economics.)

When I told a friend of mine, a wizened veteran of politics who has been a champion of free markets in Washington DC since before Nixon that this was the chant down in Rio and Brasilia he couldn’t believe it. I had to show him the kids in the streets with banners and bullhorns with my phone.
