Now you can learn the school of economic thought that politicians, mainstream economic professors and Paul Krugman don’t want you to know about.
Introducing “Economics in Action,” a book designed to equip the interested layman with a sound understanding of economics utilizing the “Austrian School” of thought. Written by Civitas Institute Executive Vice President Brian Balfour, this book’s approach is uniquely and unapologetically different from the one taken by most standard economic books.
If you view the subject of economics as intimidating, boring or abstract because of all the math and complex statistical models involved in most mainstream books and discussion on the topic, this book is for you.
Economics should be learned through examining the implications of human action through deductive logic and reason – not a calculator.
Leading Austrian-school economist Ludwig von Mises lamented the poor state of economic understanding among the common man in his treatise “Human Action”, concluding that the only way to improve this state is “by never relaxing in the search for truth.”
This book is a small contribution in the movement to reveal and spread economic truths.

Those being drawn to the liberty movement, and the “Austrian School” of economics specifically, will now be able to access the foundations of Austrian theory in the palm of their hand. This is the next logical step in utilizing the latest technology to spread the ideas so many of us hold dear.
In addition to laying out logically the core economic principles that serve as the foundation of economic theory, the app also explores Austrian analysis of common economic fallacies and public policy. And of course what Austrian economics app would be complete without sections explaining business cycle theory, money and the Fed?
In addition to the content provided, the app also includes links to dozens of articles, essays and even video lectures exploring Austrian economic concepts in greater detail.
A special thanks must be extended to Dr. Paul Cwik, Professor of Economics and Finance at the University of Mount Olive and associate scholar at the Ludwig von Mises Institute, for his role serving as academic advisor for the app.
