Human Action—a treatise on laissez-faire capitalism by Ludwig von Mises—is a historically important and classic publication on economics, and yet it can be an intimidating work due to its length and formal style. Choice: Cooperation, Enterprise, and Human Action, however, skillfully relays the main insights from Human Action in a style that will resonate with modern readers. The book assumes no prior knowledge in economics or other fields, and, when necessary, it provides the historical and scholarly context necessary to explain the contribution Mises makes on a particular issue. To faithfully reproduce the material in Human Action, this work mirrors its basic structure, providing readers with an enjoyable and educational introduction to the life’s work of one of history’s most important economists.
The one and only legendary Robert P. Murphy, joins the Launch Pad crew to discuss his newest book Choice: Cooperation Enterprise, and Human Action. Not only is Dr. Murphy an intellectual giant, he is also known to appreciate the arts, and some good ol’ rock n roll! Dr. Murphy aint no square, and he also talks about his singing career! This was a great, and hilarious episode! Make sure you check out Robert P. Murphy’s newest book !
