Notes: Žebot’s inaugural lecture on the occasion of his election to the post of Assistant Professor at the University of Ljubljana on March 27, 1942, provides a historical and theoretical overview of economic and political systems in the Western world between the late 18th and mid-20th centuries, an analysis of their strengths and weaknesses, a reflection on the (in)equitable social order in relation to the division of labor and private property in the past and in the author's time. By criticizing socialist economy and market economy alike, it provides an insight into corporatist views (advocating a class-based society and an active role of the state) typical of the politically conservative intellectuals of the time in Central Europe. Žebot’s lecture represents the most important paper on political economy in Slovenia during the Second World War and reveals the spirit of the time while providing an insight into the opportunities and limitations of the operation of the Slovenian university during the Italian occupation of the so-called Province of Ljubljana.
