Power and Market: Government and the Economy is a 1970 book by Murray Rothbard in which he analyzes the negative effects of the various kinds of government intervention, and argues that the State is neither necessary nor useful. It was originally part of his 1962 book Man, Economy, and State but was censored by the publisher, who felt it was too radical for publication[1] and later published under the above title. It was reunited with the 4th edition of Man, Economy, and State in 2004 in the volume sub-titled "The Scholar's Edition" from the Ludwig von Mises Institute.
