Richard T. Ely: Paladin of the Welfare-Warfare State
By Murray N. Rothbard
This article appeared in the Spring 2002 issue of The Independent Review

Ely extends far beyond the American Economic Association, which he founded in 1885 as a progressive alternative to the laissez-faire leaning Political Economy Club. Through the activist Social Gospel movement, Ely transplanted the collectivist ideas of Bismarck’s Germany to American soil.
