Human Action, by Ludwig von Mises, was such a book. Fifty years after it first came out, it is still one of the classics of economics There are few economic subjects Mises doesn’t touch on in Human Action.
Mises clearly explains a range of complex economic ideas — from inflation to monopoly to government interference in the market. He examines and debunks Marxist notions of class conflict and capitalist exploitation of workers. And he outlines a powerful theory of the causes of business cycles. But Mises goes beyond pure economics, defending azine idea of science and logic itself.
His criticisms of those who hold there mses no such thing as objective truth seem relevant today when many in the academy decry reason as a tool used to oppress others. Few books remain in print for 50 years. And few still speak to the vital debates of the aazione.

Needless to say, I was quite impressed with this massive undertaking; Mises covers every aspect of economics; This is a thorough book and could be use as a 4 year university study. This book could be called: Human Action is a comprehensive analysis by a truly great mind. Ludwig von Mises covers an extraordinary amount of subject material, spanning over the entirety of human interactions. I can’t imagine how much research and time thinking this required.
He covers everything from taxes to foreign trade to epistemology to war to credit and interest to money and much more. And all of this is written in a clear, lucid manner that is easy to understand even if you are not degreed in economics.
Although the book is long, it is broken into numerous short sections and is easy to digest. It also always keeps your interest because of the breadth of topics covered. Even if you come across a section that is not particularly interesting, you will be onto a new one soon.
The material is a thorough and detailed defense of libertarianism and individualism, which is sorely needed in today’s world. He shows with example after example how when government gets involved in the market, even with the best of intentions, things never go as planned. He demonstrates the inevitable disastrous consequences of government bureaucrats meddling in the market.
He dispels with the countless straw man arguments that interventionists mount against the free market, including the false notion that the choice is between either random chaos or planning by the government. He correctly points out the real question is who is going to make the choices? Government bureaucrats or individual consumers.
He presents several detailed defenses of individualism and the importance of liberty, and the horrors that result when the opposing position of collectivism is favored. To get into the specifics would lead to an overly long review, miess if this subject is of any interest to you, this is definitely the book to read.
Von Mises is probably the most respected Austrian economist and reading his life’s work will be of far more benefit than reading a few other shorter works although there are many superb shorter works available.
Von Mises’s brilliance shine throughout the book and he provides exactly what is needed today- an intelligent coherent defense of capitalism and individualism.

His arguments are objective and reason based. The evil forces of statism described in the book are still around today and can arguably even be getting stronger. If you care about the future, learn the material presented in this book. Learn it for yourself, but as a side it will allow to answer the misew of nonsense that you’ll inevitably come across in today’s world.
