Economics in One Lesson
by Henry Hazlitt
Publisher: Pocket Books 1952
Number of pages: 198
This book is an analysis of economic fallacies that are at last so prevalent that they have almost become a new orthodoxy. The one thing that has prevented this has been their own self-contradictions, which have scattered those who accept the same premises into a hundred different "schools," for the simple reason that it is impossible in matters touching practical life to be consistently wrong.

by Friedrich A. Hayek - Ludwig von Mises Institute
The greatest failing of non-Austrians theories of macroeconomics is that they lack a robust theory of capital. F.A. Hayek sought to fill out the theory of the business cycle with an impenetrable one, and the result was this remarkable 1941 treatise.
by David Batten - Westview Press
This is an informal and revealing introduction to the ideas of modern systems theory and self-organization as they apply to problems in the economic realm. David Batten interleaves anecdotes and stories with technical discussions.
by Murray N. Rothbard - Ludwig Von Mises Institute
The goal of this hefty tome by this master economist is to communicate with the public about economic theory and policy, in the form of articles. No economist has ever written so clearly about subjects usually wrapped in mystery.
by Richard von Strigl - Mises Institute
Strigl's important work is translated to English. The book links Eugen von Böhm-Bawerk's production theory and Mises's business cycle theory, and gives a pathbreaking account of the role of consumers' goods within the structure of production.
