Man, Economy and State with Jeff Deist

Summary:
Today’s solo show kicks off our reading of Rothbard’s landmark Man, Economy, and State with a look at Chapter 1, “Fundamentals of Human Action.” So much of what economics texts get wrong is laid out brilliantly here by Rothbard, who gives readers the basics of action, means/ends, time, ranking, factors of production, and capital in this 77 page master class. The short appendix at the end of the chapter alone is a bombshell—demystifying the correct form for economic analysis, and explaining why psychology is not praxeology.

Mises Institute
The Mises Institute, founded in 1982, teaches the scholarship of Austrian economics, freedom, and peace. The liberal intellectual tradition of Ludwig von Mises (1881-1973) and Murray N. Rothbard (1926-1995) guides us. Accordingly, we seek a profound and radical shift in the intellectual climate: away from statism and toward a private property order.
