Description:What exactly are “Austrian Economics?” This quote from Economics for Real People explains:

The Austrian School of economics is an alternative to the mainstream approach. It places economics on a sound, human basis. It avoids the traps that plague most of modern economics: the assumption of selfishness as the basic human motivation, a narrow definition of rational behavior, and the overuse of unrealistic models.

Devin writes in to say:

The Ludwig von Mises Institute has many important economics books available for download in Adobe Acrobat format. Here’s a link to the “Austrian Economics Study Guide”, which has a list of some of the available titles. If you explore the site a little, you’ll find dozens of titles that the von Mises Institute sells in hard copy, but also provides for free in electronic formats. If you are going to select just a few titles to offer on your site, I recommend these very important, often-cited, books:

“Economics for Real People” by Gene Callahan

“Human Action: The Scholars Edition” by Ludwig von Mises

“Liberalism: In the Classical Tradition” by Ludwig von Mises

“Capitalism: A Treatise on Economics” by George Reisman

“Speaking of Liberty” by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.

“The Ethics of Liberty” by Murry N. Rothbard

“History of Money and Banking in the United States: The Colonial Era to World War II” by Murray N. Rothbard

“Man, Economy, and State, with Power and Market” by Murray N. Rothbard”

Thanks Devin! There are far too many books on this site for me to list them all, and the site has much more than just books. For economists and anyone else interested in free and open markets, this site is Highly Recommended!
