The Austrian School of Economics

When the economy started to crumble around our ears in late September 2008, Wall Street mumbled something about being caught in a 'once in a lifetime' tsunami and then quietly resumed siphoning off taxpayer dollars to bail out failed management. Austrian economists, however, both saw the bust coming and know what to do to make our economy strong again. Here's hoping we'll learn from our mistakes.

Simon I was quite suprised to find this list. Not so suprised to to see how few peopel have voted though!

I basically just voted for the three austrian-econ books I've read!


message 2: by Thom (new)

Thom Dunn Dear J. D., Thank you for this list. Through 50 years of teaching I knew most American young people could not find Austria on a map, maybe still can't; but until this recent meltdown I never suspected that our movers and shakers couldn't find their ass with both hands and a flashlight. Thanks again.

I haven't read any of these books but sure agree with you. I got thru half of Glenn Beck's Common Sense.

The next best thing to Adam Smith, Friedrich_August_von_Hayek and the Austrian School has it right.

Thanks Ann, I will try to get this from the library.


message 6: by Mark (new)

Mark Milton Friedman was not of the Austrian School but Chicago School instead.


message 7: by ziombel (new)

ziombel Delete Milton Friedman! He is a Monetarist, not Austrialian!
