Here’s a nicely formatted HTML version of the introduction to The Capitalist and the Entrepreneur. I’d apologize for the self-promotion but, well, isn’t that the whole point of blogging?

(PS: Those of you who like to run your transactions through Amazon can get the book here. Not sure about a Kindle edition but I’m told an epub version will be available soon.)

    I had micro and macro as an undergrad and two classes in international economics as a graduate. I started with FEE and Henry Hazlitt about a thousand years ago. And yet, this all sounds new and strange. It is a different way to look at economics. In truth, these questions sound compelling and not answerable “in one lesson.” I always saw the Austrian school as a more consistent critique of intervention. I have the scholar’s edition to Human Action and it is nice, you know, for concise quotes on basic principles, but it does not present any challenges. This seems truly captivating.

    I look forward to the book.
