Rothbard

Murray Rothbard is a person everyone who wants to really understand economics should know. He will challenge you and the things you have been taught. God help you if you have gone through a mainstream economics department. You are in for a wild intellectual ride. But boy is it a ride worth taking.

If you’ve never taken an economics course, consider yourself lucky and absorb. Rothbard is profound and uncompromising.

Then compare him to Keynes, who has defined the last 80 years of economics. Tell me which one is more honest, more on point, more intellectually true. Not to say right.
