The list
below will not make anyone a scholar in libertarianism or an expert
in Austrian Economics, it is designed to introduce to the busy individual
the essence of libertarianism. There are 30 articles listed below.
If one reads one article, slowly and carefully, per day, by the
end of 30 days one should have a very strong grasp of libertarian
principles and a basic understanding of Austrian economics. The
list contains articles on a variety of topics, but does not cover
all possible libertarian topics. More than anything it provides
an overview of libertarianism and how libertarians think about issues
of the day. The completion of the 30 days of reading should not
be considered an ending point but rather the start of the beginning
of more detailed study.
