Description:
This high-school text is aimed at teaching the intelligent young reader how to think about economic problems in a manner consistent with the Austrian School tradition. Its chapters on action, preference, demand and supply, value theory, money, and price controls emphasize deductive logic, the market process, and the failures of government intervention. As the only text of its kind, it is engaging, funny, filled with examples, and never talks down to the student.
