Rothbard, now considered the dean of the neoAustrian school, devoted substantial sections of his works to a free-market counterattack on Keynesianism. Rothbard recognized early in his professional career that Keynesian economics had to be addressed. In "The Essential Von Mises" he wrote, "Keynesian economics was beautifully tailored to be the intellectual armor for the modern Welfare State, for interventionism and statism on a vast and mighty scale" (Rothbard  1980: 264). Rothbard's extensive analysis of the Keynesian system in his massive treatise, Man, Economy, and State, includes a critique of the accelerator principle, the multiplier, liquidity preference, the consumption function, and deficit financing.
