Russ It's a good question to which I don't have a good answer. One would think that Dr. Paul would have put down "Economics In One Lesson" as a good primer for anyone interested in learning how to think like an economist. If I recall correctly from this book, he'll spend a few pages outlining his general thoughts on a particular subject, then suggest two or three books for the reader to consider if he or she wished to explore the subject further. Perhaps he didn't think "Economics In One Lesson" fit well with any particular issue that he raised in the book. I'm not sure.


message 2: by Evan (new)

Evan Farah Economics in One Lesson is on his reading list in the back of The Revolution I believe. It is also on every libertarians reading list so it definitely deserves to be there.

More support is that Rand Paul had it in The Tea Party Goes to Washington (extended recommendations) and his student reading list hosted on the senate site.

I feel like Econ in 1 lesson is one of the most referenced pieces cause of how well he put together Bastiast that it is wise for anyone to begin there. By the time I got around to it a lot was stuff I had gone over already, especially with the Mises Institute's theory


message 3: by Evan (new)

Evan Farah Maybe we should work out a reading order so it is easier for new readers to get introduced to the subject matter and work through at their own pace.
