The Mises Institute is publishing a collection of my papers as The Capitalist and the Entrepreneur: Essays on Organizations and Markets (love that subtitle!). You can view some promotional materials, the table of contents, and drafts of the introduction and a sample chapter at the link above. Publication is scheduled for May 2010. I’ll post ordering information as soon as I have it. Start saving your pennies today!

    Or should we wait for the movie version?

    Thanks guys. My literary agent is working out the details for the book tour. And we’re discussing who should play me in the movie. i favor Harrison Ford or Kevin Costner, but others are suggesting John Goodman or George Wendt.

    How ’bout “the Elephant Man”?

    Peter, haven’t you heard? “Capitalism” is evil and déclassé. Didn’t you get the memo? It must have come after typesetting was complete. Too bad.


    Seriously–Congrats on this!

    It’s always exciting and inspiring to see one of our best academic figures use the term Capitalism in a proper way. No other word captures the advanced, complex, free economic system we advocate. I love the title too. Kudos.

    Sounds like a great read.

    Congratulations Pete!
    I hope the PR people send you to Australia. Maybe if they think it is Australian economics you are doing they will expect massive sales over here. Be sure to come to Sydney and not Perth or Melbourne.

    How about Paul Hogan (Crocodile Dundee) in the lead?
    “you call that a theory of capital?”
