Dr. Joe Salerno and Karl-Friedrich Israel join Jeff Deist to discuss Mises's Human Action, perhaps the greatest treatise on economics ever written. But the book can be daunting for many, given its length and the sheer enormity of the systematic thought it presents.

Our guests break down how and why everyone should read it, echoing Mises's belief that economics was the proper area of study for every thinking person. This is a great discussion of the history and behind a masterpiece of economics, epistemology, and philosophy. Read it free here!
