Five Pamphlets Inscribed by Röpke

Collection of five pamphlets by Wilhelm Röpke (1899-1966).

The pamphlets themselves are scarce, but what makes these special is that all five are inscribed by Röpke. From the collection of the late American-Romanian Economics Professor Anghel N. Rugina (the items bear his personal stamp). Masse und Demokratie [The Masses and Democracy]. 1957. 38 pp. 8 ½ x 5 ¼ inches.

All Very Good plus; some with light underlining. Röpke was a German economist and social critic. He is best known for his collaboration to organize the post-World War II economic re-awakening of war-ravaged Germany. Röpke stood for a society and social policy in which human rights are given the highest importance. He believed that individualism must be balanced by a well-thought-out principle of sociality and humanity. Although he was president of the libertarian Mont Pelerin Society from 1961 to 1962, he resigned after a series of long quarrels with Friedrich von Hayek. Priced as a set of five.
