Free Market Economics: A Basic Reader
Bettina Bien Greaves put this volume together as a one-stop primer in economics that includes the best economic writing she had run across.
They are arranged by topic to cover the division of labor, prices, profits, property, competition, saving and investment, environment, antitrust, money and banking, advertising and marketing, and more.
Authors include Read, Mises, Bastiat, Greaves, Kirzner, Watts, Hazlitt, and many other writers.
Each essay is short and to the point. It still makes a great primer!
Irvington, NY: FEE, 1974.
