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.

In what way is Schiff a fraud?
