I’m currently reading Man, Economy and State with Power and Market by Murray Rothbard. I just finished chapter 2, on direct exchange, today and already it is clear to me that this is truly an amazing book on economic theory (praxeology would be more apt I suppose).
My all-time favourite book is Human Action by Ludwig von Mises (and, Rothbard being Mises’ disciple, this is the primary reason why I decided to take on Man, Economy and State) but this might yet take the crown. Whereas Human Action is undeniably brilliant, MES seems to be a much more systematic treatise on economics. It will take me a few months to get through the whole thing, but I’m sure I’ll read it all and enjoy every minute of it.
