I love the “NO!?”

but did I also read “Poo”?

What are the chance of having this book scanned in high quality like Google Books does? Being able to “see” the thought process of someone as remarkable as Rothbard would be extremely valuable!

He wrote “Foo!”

If thats an F I will eat my hat!

I have really bad hand writing and any body that tried to use example math problems from me and school would always get pissed b/c they couldn’t decipher my 3 and 5. I could by looking at the stops, starts, and sweeps. MNR clearly has 1 vertical line with one rounded sweep. Its either a D or a P.

Amazing artifact. I like the idea of scanning it as well.

And for the record, I totally read “Poo!” too.

Very interesting! I would also like to see the annotated copy of Hayek’s ‘Prices and Production’ by a notable Keynesian (I very much doubt that any Keynesian ever annotated, or even read, a copy of ‘Human Action’)…

The handwriting is too hard to read!

To the powerful and perceptive mind of Rothbard Keynes’ General Theory must have seemd like a poorly written satire by a buffoon.

Awesome! I wish I could read some of the longer notes. His handwriting was as bad as mine is.

I often daydream of reading books and daily news articles with the mind of Mises or Rothbard. Being able to on-the-fly tear apart every flaw and fallacy.

“Poo!”

Awesome.
