    The Rise and Fall of Society

    The Rise and Fall of Society This book is one of the best expositions of economics and politics ever written. It was Chodorov’s last book and the one most overlooked. It’s tragic. It’s great. It explains central economic ideas from the Austrian tradition, and offers up a highly sophisticated theory of the state and its operations. It is one of the books that cannot be overlooked.

    Denationalization of Money

    Denationalization of Money Hayek’s book stands out among all Austrian literature as the one to reject the strategic possibility of reform from the top. Instead he favored a bottom-up solution in which the market itself reinvents currency based on complex financial institution. He foresaw the possibility of Bitcoin if not its actual structure. This was 1974, after all. This book also revises the conventional Austrian view of what constitutes money. Must read! Kick off the discussion! Questions, comments, observations or elaborations?

Description

What if the government let anyone use a currency of his or her own choosing? What if the government permitted entrepreneurs to innovate in the monetary sector, such as by creating digital currencies or minting commodity money? This is precisely what F.A. Hayek argues in this book written in 1974. Join Jeffrey Tucker for a discussion of this book, and of current innovations in monetary denationalization, June 6th at 8pm EDT!
