    One thought on “Living Economics: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow”

    1. I just finished reading an excellent book by Economist Peter Boettke titled Living Economics: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow. The book is filled with comparisons of economic philosophies and the history of the economists who introduced these ideas. From the Classical economists to the Keynesians to the Neo-Classical economists to the Austrians, this book has something in it for everyone.Dr. Boettke also focuses on the importance of teaching economics. Although economists should not direct public [...]

    2. Boettke is great of course and the main thrusts of this book are important to made and repeated. But it felt like too much repetition to me -- at least if read straight through rather than sampled at leisure over time. It is a collection of previously published essays and so the same or similar points seem to get made over and over again. And at times it can get a little dry. But for someone who is a student of economics, the lessons taught are invaluable.

    3. What a marvelous Introduction. Boettke is incredible.I love his summaries of the key issues in economics and teaching economics.His chapter "Was Mises Right" was a fantastic synthesis of Mises's ideas as well putting Mises in context.The next chapter on Kirzer was excellent too.Loving this book. Wish I had more time to read and digest.

    4. This is a solid book. It felt, to me, like an introduction to many important characters within the classical liberal and Austrian tradition (as well as Public Choice and New Institutionalists) as well as their important contributions. I don't recommend this, however, for someone who does not really love reading about economics, but hasn't taken a macro class. There are a lot of references to things like general equilibrium theory and what not. There are reoccurring themes in the book like the en [...]

    5. Excellent work tracing the main issue in Economics from the late 1800s forward. Good source material on Public Choice theory.
