We have a slew of great new books added to literature
My personal favorite first, by the most forgotten of all the Austrians: Common Sense Economics, by L. Albert Hahn. Here is an excellent presentation of the Austrian Theory of the Business Cycle, which Hahn in his day (40s and 50s) regarded as common sense as compared with the wacky and upside down world of countercyclical policy. He is extremely articulate here, following up on Hayek’s triangles and foreshadowing Garrison. This is a treasure – yesterday impossible to find and today everywhere at once. It reads like it was written last week.
We also have:
Compulsory Medical Care and the Welfare State, by Melchior Palyi
Studies in Economic Nationalism, by Michael A. Heilperin (similarly obscure but also great)
The Gold Standard and Its Future, by T.E. Gregory (a Rothbard favorite)
Money: It’s Connexion with Rising and Falling Prices, by Edwin Cannan (part of a campaign to unleash Cannan on the world)
Wealth: A Brief Explanation of the Causes of Economic Welfare, by Edwin Cannan
Property in a Human Economy, ed. Samuel L. Blumenfeld (some outstanding pieces here)
Risk, Uncertainty, and Profit, by Frank H. Knight (amazing that we didn’t have this up already)
Tariffs: A Study in Method, T.E.G. Gregory
Thank you to everyone who made these suggestions.
