As a first-year Politics, Philosophy and Economics student I wanted to do some reading over the summer on issues that I found interesting. As someone with an economically-conservative outlook, I wanted to research further and refine my views, or if necessary change them. I found this introduction to the Austrian School absolutely fascinating, it has given me a new way of looking at contemporary economics and has affirmed my belief that capitalism, whilst imperfect, is at least better than anything else which has been tried.
If you want this book in .pdf format you can find it on the Adam Smith Institute website, too. Check out the Institute for Economic Affairs for more free-market propaganda ;)
