Criticism[edit]

In 2012, libertarian philosopher David Gordon gave a critical examination of Williamson's 2011 The Politically Incorrect Guide to Socialism. In his view, Williamson made considerable mistakes in his interpretations of various economists, including Ludwig von Mises, and made factual errors in matters of history.[5]
