About this Title:

This is part of “The Best of the Online Library of Liberty” which is a collection of some of the most important material in the OLL. This essay is by the American economist Paul Heyne who explains in a mere 5 pages how to think like an economist. If you only ever read one essay by an economist this is the one to read. (Well, maybe also Bastiat’s “The Broken Window”.)
