Learn Austrian Economics

Not sure if this has been posted before...

I have only scratched the surface of this topic, and am looking to dive deeper. I found this while looking for a reference to economics books and found that some of these books are available online. This is a good source of information, so I thought I'd share.

Learn Austrain Economics by Thomas E. Woods, Jr.

The past several years have seen a revival of interest in the Austrian School of economics. (For some background on the Austrian School, read this essay and this essay.) I've assembled this resource list to help beginners embark on a program of self-education in the Austrian School. I have marked a few titles with ** to indicate their importance.

Many of the books and audiobooks, in addition to all of the articles, that appear on the list below are available to read or listen to online.

Check out this video series if you are still looking for sources.

The books on the list you linked are great also, but I thought these videos were good. There are a couple of them.

Right on!

Thanks jrd :)

I debate my friend all the time, and he is an economics major (keynesianism). We've been going back and forth about politics/economics/history/religion for a couple years now. I haven't converted him yet, but this semester he is actually taking Austrian Economics and Economic Freedom as elective classes. A task I doubt he would have taken, had we not been debaters for so long.

They say to never debate those topics with friends, especially co-workers, but he is my supervisor and we have a very cool dynamic that allows us to talk about these things without getting too heated.

Well, being only self-educated and not college educated, I can't let this Statist, learn more than I know about the subject, haha.

Thanks again for the link.

Haha

My situation is actually reverse. I grew up learning about Austrian Economics from my Dad, and then I went to college and studied economics (well I minored in it and majored in literature.. I know, I know, quite the combination). Anyways, my best friend is a statist also and because we also have such a unique bond we can debate/argue anything so we argue this stuff all the time. He did not go to school (I don't think that matters at all, I only went because I had scholarships but I learned more about economics from mises and whatnot), so we go back and forth for hours.

I got him to watch the series I left you a link for and he is changing his tune, just a little bit, but he is thinking about things in a new way now.

Keep working on your friend, waking people up is so much fun!
