Electronic Cornucopia of Liberty
[cross-posted at Austro-Athenian Empire]
Good things that are now available online:
- Israel Kirzner's 1960 work on economic methodology, The Economic Point of View.
- All back issues of Rothbard's 1970s journal Libertarian Forum.
- The trailer for the movie version of the anarchist comic book V for Vendetta.

Kirzner is overly modest. His book is sadly neglected and deserves the widest readership.

Ages ago, I mentioned to Kirzner his "Economic Point of View" in the middle of a discussion with about his "entrepreneurial theory of ownership." Explained that I enjoyed it immensely and he kind of pooh-poohed the book as not being overly good. I felt somewhat embarrassed in defending the book from its author, but I believe it is a far better introductory work in economic theory than most Econ 101 books and lacking in the errors of nearly all others.
Also pointed out some of the interesting material by Carl Menger's brother's (Anton Menger) work, "Whole Produce of Labor" to him on Ricardian socialism. Don't know if you are familiar with this work. Of course, one of the primary Ricardian socialists, Thomas Hodgskin, was neither Ricardian nor socialist, but that is another matter.
Very glad to see Lib Forum finally online. It brings back all sorts of memories of that time. "Listen YAF!" and many of Rothbard's best writings were there.
Just a thought.

I use "comic book" for the same reason Ayn Rand used "selfishness." :-)
