- History is not what we are taught. Here is a book that will turn
everything you learn about economic thoughts on its head. It all
did start with the Greeks, but Chinese, Catholics, Spanish
Scholastics, medieval Europeans, the modern nation states all
witnessed the ebb and flow of ideas about economic freedom -
clearly it was no one-way progress. Adam Smith paved the way for
Marxism. There is more startlingly detailed and extensive
discussion about what went through the ancient minds.

- "That Which Is Seen, and That Which Is Not Seen" is an 1850
essay by Frédéric Bastiat. Often summarized as the "Broken Window
Fallacy," this classic and witty essay inspired Henry Hazlitt's
1946 book Economics in One Lesson that is still popular today. I

videos. You can read or listen to the full translated essay in

- Hayek knows that we cannot know enough to plan the economy, that
if we insist on central planning we would create injustice and
violence, that mainstream economists are only pretending to know,
advising government conceit that becomes so destructive. The
"Chops" section bookmarks additional works by other Austrian
economists on the economic calculation problem.

- Human Action is the magnum opus of Ludwig von Mises about
praxeology, the study of human action and choice. Although a tome
of a book, a review has likened reading it to "imagine yourself in
a large mansion that is dark but for the nightlights along the
wall. You stumble from switch to switch, feeling your way around.
Then someone comes along and throws on a switch that illuminates
the whole building, inside and out, including the grounds outside.
This is what Human Action does."

- Despite government interventions recommended by mainstream
economists, the world continues to breed bubbles and crashes.
Crises come in novel forms - as governments "learn" new ways to
print money, lower interest rates, and subsidize new sectors - in
energy prices, savings & loans, stock crash, currency swing,
internet bust, housing, education loans, and what next? Why can't
mainstream economics resolve the issue? What does the much maligned
free-market Austrian school have to offer?

- austrian_economic, college, economic, high_school, logic
- "Logic used to be a key component in liberal education: it was
part of the classic “trivium.” ... The School of Salamanca used
scholastic logic to give birth to economic theory. ... The Austrian
School used logic to rigorize and advance economic science.
However, the rise of positivism rang the death knell for the
widespread study of logic. It is time to reinstate logic as a
tool." ~Mises Academy. You can still download the text for free

This course presents the essentials of logic—the science of correct reasoning. Deductive reasoning transmits truth from premises to conclusion. If one starts with true premises, and reasons correctly, the conclusion will be true also. Common fallacies are identified and examples from discussions in politics and economics are given.
The course emphasizes ordinary language reasoning rather than mathematical logic. Although practical application is stressed, some of the philosophical issues that logic raises are also covered. Whatever your career path or field of study, you will find the use of logic to be invaluable. ~ Mises Academy.
You are free to download the text (ePub, Kindle, and other formats) even without enrolling in the course.
