About the Author
Ludwig von Mises (1881-1973) was a preeminent philosopher and economist during the twentieth century. He shared an intellectual friendship with literary giant Ayn Rand, and his theorems and philosophies have continued to influence the careers and ideas of politicians and economists alike. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Robert Murphy's "Politically Incorrect Guide to Capitalism", should be read by everyone concerned with current economic affairs. True capitalism (and not the crony capitalism we see too much of today) has brought us to the standard of living we have today and we need to return to the proper application of this concept.
I was not disappointed. This little book packs a punch, and reinforces important principles of economics nearly forgotten by the masses today. The book also serves to remind us that the war of ideas, between capitalism and Marxism, has been ongoing for well over a century, and must still be enjoined by all who would keep their liberty and their society's prosperity.
Read this book, then dig into Human Action. Take a similar approach to Hayek--The Road to Serfdom first, then the Constitution of Liberty.
I suppose that it should not be surprising that a man with a comprehensive and unusual understanding of economics would have a certain insight into human motivations and their psychological basis. One follows the other. Von Mises makes the case that this carries over into political philosophy.
