More About the Author

Ron Paul, an eleven-term congressman from Texas, is the leading advocate of freedom in our nation's capital. He has devoted his political career to the defense of individual liberty, sound money, and a non-interventionist foreign policy. Judge Andrew Napolitano calls him "the Thomas Jefferson of our day." After serving as a flight surgeon in the U.S. Air Force in the 1960s, Dr. Paul moved to Texas to begin a civilian medical practice, delivering over four thousand babies in his career as an obstetrician. He served in Congress from 1976 to 1984, and again from 1996 to the present. He and Carol Paul, his wife of fifty-one years, have five children, eighteen grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.Ron Paul, the New York Post once wrote, is a politician who "cannot be bought by special interests." "There are few people in public life who, through thick and thin, rain or shine, stick to their principles," added a congressional colleague. "Ron Paul is one of those few."

As the other reviewers noted a very informative short introduction to a very relevant topic. But don't pay $279.99, or $29.99, or $7.94 (plus $3.99 S&H), or even $3. No, go to the Ludwig von Mises Institute web site and view the PDF for free.

This is a good introduction to the basics of Austrian economics. It's short enough that it can be read in pretty much one sitting, it's basically essay-length, but Dr. Paul still manages to pack in a lot of good information.

Even if you don't know much about economics, this book is still very accessible. I'd particularly recommend it if you're not familiar with Austrian economics. Dr. Paul avoids getting excessively technical or using too much jargon.

Even if you're not especially interested in economics, I'd still recommend reading this book - it doesn't take that long to read and every informed citizen and voter should know at least something about economics. Economics is something that affects everyone every day of their life whether they like it or not, so why don't more people study it?

I'd highly recommend this book. By the way, Dr. Paul is running for President in 2008, so a lot of the issues he brings up here are going to be a factor in the election - just one more reason to read it if you wish to be an informed voter. If you're not familiar with Dr. Paul, want to learn more about his views on economics, or haven't decided who you're voting for in 2008, those are great reasons to read this book. Even if those don't apply to you, though, I'd still recommend reading this book.

This is a short pamphlet published by the Ludwig von Mises Institute (and still available from them for $3!) on Paul's education in Austrian economics. Nice little intro to the topic.

Ron Paul is one of today's greatest economic minds. I highly recommend this book to those people who intuitively recognize the flaws of Keynesianism and are searching for an economic model that accurately explains the economic events of today's world.
