Book Review: Rothbard’s Making Economic Sense
Ben Kramer-Miller writes at Seeking Alpha:
- A series of newsletter articles and shorter essays designed for the layperson interested in libertarian ideas and free market thought.
- The book is highly entertaining and extremely accessible to people of all backgrounds.
- Rothbard’s bluntness is appreciated in our sanitized, “PC” collective consciousness.
*Note that this book has been made available for free by the Mises Institute. You can find it here.
