Why perestroika failed : the politics and economics of socialist transformation by Peter J Boettke ( Book )
11 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 376 libraries worldwide
Gorbachev's reforms brought high hopes in the West and empty shelves in the East. Why Perestroika Failed argues that successful reform is only possible on the basis of a sound understanding of market and political processes. Using an Austrian market process approach to analyse the economics of the Soviet system, and a public choice one to sound understanding of market and political address the political dimension, Boettke argues that Gorbachev's reforms were always destined to fail. In part perestroika failed because it was never really implemented. But nonetheless, even if all the major proposals and decrees had been scrupulously adhered to, they would not have produced the structural changes necessary to revive the former Soviet economy. Knowing why perestroika failed is crucially important as the former Soviet republics and East and Central Europe try and chart a new course.
Handbook on contemporary Austrian economics ( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 375 libraries worldwide
The Austrian school of economics was founded in 1871 with the publication of Carl Menger's Principles of Economics. In his book, Menger argued that economic analysis is universally applicable and that the appropriate unit of analysis is man and his choices. These choices, he wrote, are determined by individual subjective preferences and the margin on which decisions are made. The logic of choice, he believed, is the essential building block to the development of a universally valid economic theory. The home of the field moved first to Britain and then on to the US and at present, a diverse mix.

The text is designed primarily for a one semester survey course in general economics. It has also been successfully used in M.B.A. economics courses and in Master's courses in economic education. The Economic Way of Thinking develops the basic principles of micro- and macroeconomic analysis, and employs them as tools rather than ends unto themselves. This text introduces students to a method of reasoning; to think like an economist. It teaches students through example and application. It even teaches by showing students how not to think, by exposing them to the errors implicit in much popular reasoning about economic events.

Context matters : institutions and entrepreneurship by Peter J Boettke ( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 17 libraries worldwide
This survey explores the important connection between institutions and entrepreneurship. Institutions consist of the formal and informal "rules of the game." Entrepreneurs act within a context determined by these rules. The rules of the game create payoffs that make certain entrepreneurial opportunities more attractive than others. We explore the relevant literature from institutional economics and entrepreneurial studies, focusing on the important link between the two. Particular emphasis is placed on entrepreneurship within several different institutional settings -- private for-profit, private nonprofit, and political -- as well as the impact of entrepreneurship on institutions. We conclude by discussing the implications for future research on the topic.
