  1. Hayek Revisited

    Hayek Revisited

    Edited by Boudewijn Bouckaert, Annette Godart-van der Kroon
    The authors present an overview of the intellectual influences and historical events which inspired Hayek and examine the development of the idea of spontaneous order. They also describe the reasons why Hayek rejected constructivism for a more evolutionary approach in economics, political theory and legal theory. They go on to examine the welfare state, probably the most controversial area of Hayek’s work. They then discuss the neutrality of the state and the morality of cooperation in society, the rule of law and constitution, and the concepts of the totalitarian state and free society. Learn More

  3. The Foundations of Austrian Economics from Menger to Mises

    The Foundations of Austrian Economics from Menger to Mises

    Allen Oakley
    This landmark book presents a critical study of the Austrian subjectivism of Menger and Mises and assesses their contribution in the light of contemporary philosophy of the human sciences. Allen Oakley lays emphasis on the subjectivism of Menger and Mises as the foundation of Austrian economics. By situating their work in the context of the philosophies of the human sciences evolving around them, he shows how these founders of the modern Austrian tradition failed to fully appreciate and to adopt the more penetrating subjectivism of their contemporaries. He argues that, as a result, they left their successors an incomplete and ambiguous metatheoretical legacy. Learn More

  7. Puzzles and Paradoxes in Economics

    Puzzles and Paradoxes in Economics

    Mark Skousen, Kenna C. Taylor
    Economics is full of puzzles and paradoxes that often frustrate and challenge everyone, including economists. This engaging book includes fifty puzzles and focuses on three types of paradox. First, everyday observations that appear to belie common sense (such as why some supermarket items sell for more per ounce in larger sizes). Secondly, those paradoxes which have perplexed economists in the past but have since been fairly resolved (such as the diamond–water paradox). Finally, empirical or conceptual anomalies that remain unresolved and present a challenge to today’s economists (such as the voting paradox). Learn More

  12. TRADE PROTECTION IN THE UNITED STATES

    TRADE PROTECTION IN THE UNITED STATES

    Charles K. Rowley, Willem Thorbecke, Richard E. Wagner
    Trade Protection in the United States analyzes the history of US trade policy to explain why interest groups are able to foster protectionist policies despite the advantages which free trade offers consumers. The authors also explain why the principles of managed trade – as epitomized in the institution of the GATT – are inevitably subverted by protectionism. This important book concludes with a vigorous justification of unilateral free trade and makes a convincing case for protecting the freedom to trade through an amendment to the US constitution.

  13. CLASSICAL ECONOMICS

    CLASSICAL ECONOMICS

    Murray N. Rothbard
    As the first comprehensive treatment of Classical economics from a modern Austrian perspective, this important history of nineteenth century economic thought discusses the key members of each school and reassesses their work. Professor Rothbard’s approach offers new perspectives on both Ricardo and Say and their followers. The author suggests that Ricardianism declined after 1820 and was only revived with the work of John Stuart Mill. The book also resurrects the important Anglo-Irish school of thought at Trinity College, Dublin under Archbishop Richard Whately. Later chapters focus on the roots of Karl Marx and the nature of his doctrines, and laissez-fairé thought in France including the work of Frédéric Bastiat. Also included is a comprehensive treatment of the bullionist versus anti-bullionist and the Currency versus banking School controversies in the first half of the nineteenth century, and their influence outside Great Britain.

  15. BUREAUCRACY AND PUBLIC ECONOMICS

    BUREAUCRACY AND PUBLIC ECONOMICS

    William A. Niskanen
    Bureaucracy and Public Economics brings together in one volume the classic book and related articles which put forward the first formal economic theory of the behaviour of bureaucracies. William Niskanen Jr. has consistently argued that bureaucrats have personal objectives – that differ from those of both their political supervisors and the general public – which they further by use of their monopoly power. He develops his argument to contend that government budgets have become too large and should be curtailed. All of Professor Niskanen’s major contributions to this field have been brought together in this one volume including his pioneering article on ‘The Peculiar Economics of Bureaucracy’, the full text of the book ‘Bureaucracy and Representative Government’ and his recent reassessment of the larger body of scholarship on the economics of bureaucracy.

  16. The Market Process

    The Market Process

    Edited by Peter J. Boettke, David L. Prychitko
    The Market Process presents a series of important and innovative articles written by economists of the Austrian School. Covering the gamut of economic issues, including equilibrium theory, free banking, public choice, and the problems of contemporary social reform, the book is an ideal introduction to the diversity of contemporary Austrian economics and its innovative trajectory of research in the late twentieth century. Drawing upon essays published in the journal Market Process during the 1980s, this book reflects an extended dialogue over the value and limitations of Austrian economics. It makes available to a wider audience contributions by some of the leading figures in the field. At the cutting edge of interdisciplinary research, it incorporates the latest developments in areas overlooked by neoclassical economists including process analysis, methodological subjectivism, and phenomenological hermeneutics.

  17. ETHICS AND ECONOMIC THEORY

    ETHICS AND ECONOMIC THEORY

    Kurt W. Rothschild
    This distinguished book provides a critical assessment of the relationship between economic theory, scientific objectivity and ethics. The main purpose of economic science is to analyse and ‘explain’ the economic process but not necessarily to pass judgement as to whether this process is ‘good’ or ‘bad’. However, in practice it is very difficult for the economist to study the ‘laws’ of economics without ever touching ethical questions. It is shown that economic theories – despite avowals of scientific objectivity – contain implicitly or explicitly many aspects which have ethical implications. Making extensive use of real-life examples and offering a new perspective on the ethical dimensions of economic analysis, this book will prove essential reading for economists and philosophers alike.

  19. PROPERTY AS A GUARANTOR OF LIBERTY

    PROPERTY AS A GUARANTOR OF LIBERTY

    James M. Buchanan
    Defences for regimes of private property ownership are normally grounded on economic efficiency arguments. In Property as a Guarantor of Liberty a different approach is taken, one that grounds the defence of private property ownership on the protection it affords to individual liberty. Several interesting implications emerge from the analysis, including an explanation of the desire by individuals for ownership of consumer durable goods. A direct implication of this analysis is that constitutional limits must be in place, prior to any exercise of democratic governance, to constrain overt political intrusions into rights of property. The confusion that has corrupted Western attitudes, and that threatens to close off the opportunities now presented to emerging post-socialist societies, involves a failure to recognise that ‘constitutional’ must be placed in front of the word ‘democracy’ if the political equity of individuals is to contain any meaningful measure of freedom and autonomy.
