The Generosity of Murray Rothbard

March 24, 2009 by

It is a magnificent thing that Murray Rothbard’s most overlooked masterpiece, his Austrian Perspective on the History of Economic Thought, has now been made available free online in two volumes, with complete navigation tools: Economic Thought Before Adam Smith and Classical Economics. It is the culmination of a process that began in the 1980s with the original research and writing, and many lectures, often presented at the offices of the Mises Institute. FULL ARTICLE

I read a bit of the PDF files, and based on what I saw, purchased the hard-cover. We are blessed that Rothbard was so prolific, and I look forward to reading these volumes. Thanks, much, Rockwell et al, for this wonderful island of freedom and intellectual honesty in the fetid sea of state-worshipping that passes for rational public discourse today.

I wish I could have met Rothbard; but alas, I came across his ideas several years after his passing. It’s heroic that LvMI continues to spread Austrian economics and libertarianism.

Will Raimondo’s Enemy of the State ever be released online?

I wanted those two volumes at the time they were first published but because they were so expensive I waited for them to come down in price, and waited, and waited, and waited. Finally, I bit the bullet and paid the price, which, as I recall, was $190.00, So now, discovering that the two volumes can be had essentially for free, what can I say? I can say that at the price I paid they were a bargain back then and still are. The volume on economic thought before Adam Smith alone was worth the price I paid. It provides a view of history previously neglected if not entirely unexplored. Now, thanks to the LvMI, every student of economics can afford to discover the origins of the science they study.
