The Best of the OLL No. 14: Paul Heyne, “Economics Is a Way of Thinking” (1995)

This essay is by the American economist Paul Heyne who explains in a mere 5 pages how to think like an economist. Anyone can learn to think like an economist, and we think this might be the best introduction to the process. (Well, maybe also Bastiat’s “The Broken Window”.)
