"This book is a reprint of an IEA publication. Despite his fame, there is still widespread ignorance about the breadth of Adam Smith's contributions to economics, politics and philosophy. In Adam Smith: a primer, Eamonn Butler provides an authoritative introduction to the life and work of this 'founder of economics'."--Provided by publisher
The best book on the market : how to stop worrying and love the free economy by Eamonn Butler( Book )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and Chinese and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The free market makes the world go around. Maybe it's time we all tried to understand it a little better ... Markets are everywhere. But how many of us understand how they work, and why? ... Abandoning complicated mumbo-jumbo, Eamonn Butler, Director of the UK's leading free market think-tank, demystifies the world of markets, competition, monopolies and cartels, prices and overspills. Using examples from our everyday lives Dr Butler explains how the markets we have, and the many more we need, can work to create a richer, freer and more peaceful world ... He delves into the morality of markets and interrogates important issues such as why feckless rock-stars are paid much more than worthy nurses; whether we should worry about people trading in arms, water, healthcare etc; whether black markets are immoral; and questions of equality; sweatshops, and fair trade. This book is about the free market and how unfree it can be when there is a lack of belief in freedom itself"--Publisher's description

Hayek : his contribution to the political and economic thought of our time by Eamonn Butler( )

8 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Starting with a short survey of Hayek's life, Dr. Butler goes on to analyze all the main elements in his thought under six basic headings: Understanding How Society Works; The Market Process; Hayek's Critique of Socialism; Criticism of Social Justice; The Institutions of a Liberal Order; and The Constitution of a Liberal State. Hayek's influence in helping a generation to understand the nature of society and the errors of collectivism goes far beyond that of any other writer of his period. Having been decades ahead of his time when he began to write, Hayek is proving to be one of the most seminal thinkers of our age
Ludwig von Mises : fountainhead of the modern microeconomics revolution by Eamonn Butler( )

8 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises is increasingly recognized as one of the most important originators of modern economic thought. This book studies his ideas in a clear and systematic way and pulls out from Mises's own writings the main themes of his work. Mises's central theme is an emphasis on microeconomics. All real economic decisions, he insists, are taken by particular people at particular times and places; the motivating forces, therefore, are personal and psychological. In this view, economics is not a science at all, but a discipline more like mathematics or geometry. Its principles are deduced not by observation and experiment, but from certain axiomatic facts about the nature of human choice. This basic insight allows Mises to study important topics such as entrepreneurship and competition in new and fruitful ways
