Commerce and Government. By Etienne Bonnot, Abbe de Condillac

Commerce and Government is an extremely important book in the Austrian tradition. Reason enough, I shall hope, for every Austrian economist to become acquainted with it. The book is essential reading for students of the history of economic thought, but it could also be used with great profit as a supplementary reading assignment in any course on the principles of economics. Condillac’s work is a timeless classic. Its elegant prose and the axiomatic clarity of the argument still make it a great introduction to economics.
