By David J. Zemens on August 7, 2006
Format: Paperback
I was fortunate enough to pick this book up used at the Mises Institute, in Auburn, AL last week for $3. I now see why it's listing here on Amazon for $99+, and I will not part with it. It's a wonderfully, simply written volume on the phenomena of increasing nominal wages, and covers many contributing factors. From the free-market perspective, F.A. Harper easily demonstrate's Menger's theory of Marginal Utility without ever noting the Economist or his theory.

The beauty of this book is in its simplicity - I'd recommend it to any aspring economist or economics student.

Harper wrote an interesting book. One fear when starting a book like this is that it will become highly technical for technical's sake, which this author did not do. The author did a great job of clearly covering a topic. A learned a great deal. It reads and flows well.

Found a used copy that might as well be in new condition. Very good book I would recommend to anyone, not just college students, if you are interested in this topic.

This book should be required reading of every single elected official at the local, state and national levels of government, including the president. This reading should occur before they start their term of office. Many of these officials do not have a working knowledge of economics, in my opinion. It is also highly recommended for the citizens of this country, many of whom do not have a clue of how the free market economy works to their benefit.
