Descobri num artigo do blog do Ludwig Von Mises Institute, esta frase de Von Mises, como comentário critico à actuação dos Governos durante a Grande Depressão.

Apesar do tempo já passado vale a pena transcrevê-la:

 

"If everything possible is done to prevent the market from fulfilling its function of bringing supply and demand into balance, it should come as no surprise that a serious disproportionality between supply and demand persists, that commodities remain unsold, factories stand idle, millions are unemployed, destitution and misery are growing and that finally, in the wake of all these, destructive radicalism is rampant in politics . . . With the economic crisis, the breakdown of interventionist policy -- the policy being followed today by all governments, irrespective of whether they are responsible to parliaments or rule openly as dictatorhsips -- becomes apparent. Hampering the functions of the market and the formation of prices does not create order. Instead it leads to chaos, to economic crisis."

I've found out this phrase that Von Mises wrote during the Great Depression in an article in the Ludwig Von Mises Institute Blog

 

"If everything possible is done to prevent the market from fulfilling its function of bringing supply and demand into balance, it should come as no surprise that a serious disproportionality between supply and demand persists, that commodities remain unsold, factories stand idle, millions are unemployed, destitution and misery are growing and that finally, in the wake of all these, destructive radicalism is rampant in politics . . . With the economic crisis, the breakdown of interventionist policy -- the policy being followed today by all governments, irrespective of whether they are responsible to parliaments or rule openly as dictatorhsips -- becomes apparent. Hampering the functions of the market and the formation of prices does not create order. Instead it leads to chaos, to economic crisis."
