Capitalism and Freedom, by Milton Friedman. Copyright 1962. Paperback. 202 pages.
Milton Friedman is an excellent economist of the Chicago school of economics. This book is an economist's view of the relationship between economic liberty and freedom. I have reread this short book many times over the years, and I always come away satisfied with the amount of brilliance contained within it. If you think economics is dry, you haven't tried this book. I don't agree with everything Friedman says, but few say as many interesting things as well.

Economics in One Less, by Henry Hazlitt. Copyright 1946. Hardback. 222 pages.
If you are going to read only one book on economics, this is the one. It is an examination of economic fallacies. Unfortunately, these are economic fallacies you still hear falling from the mouths of tax and spend politicians, and even from the news media. It is amazing to me that a book written over fifty years ago can still make so many useful points. The essay called "The Broken Window" is worth the cost of the book in itself. Read this book and you will be well armed, indeed.

The Machinery of Freedom: Guide to a Radical Capitalism, by David Friedman. Copyright 1973 and 1978. Hardback. 240 pages.
