Quote of the day:

"The economic historian Werner Sombart asked in 1906, 'Why is there no socialism in the United States?' and answered that 'all socialist utopias come to grief on roast and apple pie'."
(McCloskey, D. N. 2010. Bourgeois dignity. Chicago: Chicago University Press, p. 3).

Sombart ref.: Sombart, W. 1906. Warum gibt es in den Vereinigten Staaten keinen Sozialismus? [Why is there no socialism in the United States?]. Tübingen: J.C.B. Mohr. Translated New York: Sharpe, 1976.
