Economic calculation is common to all people. Mises insisted that the logical structure of human minds is the same for everybody. Of course, this is not to say that all minds are the same. We make different value judgments and posses different data, but logic is the same for all. Human reason and economic calculation have limitations, but Mises sees no alternative to economic calculation as a means of using scarce resources to improve our well being.
Human Action concerns dynamics. The opposite to action is not inaction. Rather, the opposite to action is contentment.Read more ›
20 Federal Reserve Notes and two months later and I cannot imagine a better way I could have spent that time or money.
If you have a high time preference for becoming smarter, understanding the market economy, refuting trite fallacies other annoy you with daily, and want a solid understanding of the repercussions that will come from your government's decisions, this book is not just going to be your n...it is going to be your (n - 1).
Buy it, read it, rock harder than the rest.
*Edit: Mises Institute just released a $10 edition of the book. It is so cheap you should feel like you are stealing when you get it for that price.
Some people told me that the views in this book are rather dated. Those people have never actually read the book. Communists and politicians use the same arguments to promote the same "new and exciting" ideas they were trying to push 100 years ago. This book in details explains why all of it is false and will lead to disaster and misery. There is no shortage of examples where socialism failed. However, there are always reasons to believe that "This time is different". It never is. I have read works by Adam Smith, Friedrich Hayek, Milton Friedman, Murray N. Rothbard and others. And in my opinion, Mises is the greatest of them all
