Muarry Rothbard on Douglass North

David Gordon writes:
Murray Rothbard reviewed an early work by Douglass North, The Economic Growth of the United States, 1790-1860. He rejected North’s approach to history, finding it deterministic. He also challenged North’s use of statistics. The review is published in the collection that I edited, Strictly Confidential, pp.188-193.

North, an economist and Nobel Prize winner died at the age of 95 on Monday.
