Wright published many articles and books during his life. Some of them are The Keynesian System, (ISBN 978-0-313-24090-4), which was part four of The Miller Lectures,The Trouble with Marx in 1967 and Democracy and Progress in 1948. In The Trouble With Marx, Dr. Wright foretold the decline and fall of the Soviet system. His critical analysis explained how the inherent rigidity of central planning and command economies of Marxist-Leninist regimes inhibit economic growth by suppressing the essential quality needed for growth: change which fosters further growth. The Trouble with Marx was also used his Comparative Economic Systems course which he taught in summer sessions at the Naval War College at Newport, Rhode Island.
