The Essence of Entrepreneurship and the Nature and Significance of Market Process By Israel M. Kirzner
Edited by Peter J. Boettke and Frédéric Sautet

Economics

The Essence of Entrepreneurship and the Nature and Significance of Market Process is a continuation of the discourse started in Kirzner’s earlier work, Competition and Entrepreneurship, expanding upon his ideas about entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial alertness. Essence presents most of the detailed research Kirzner has done on the nature of entrepreneurship and the entrepreneurial process in the decades following the publication of his magnum opus. It is during that long period that Kirzner elaborated his approach further, responding to objections and critics, and offering the world a more systematic understanding of the concept of market process.

Fluttering Veil The

The Fluttering Veil: Essays on Monetary Disequilibrium By Leland B. Yeager
Introduction by George Selgin

Economics

Money’s unique and essential role in a free market and monetary disequilibrium as the root cause of the business cycle are principles central to the work of economist Leland Yeager. For three decades he has extolled the preeminent importance of money as a source of economic fluctuations whose influence goes well beyond mere changes in interest rates or the price level. Yeager’s work discloses the disruptive consequences of “monetary disequilibrium,” or an imbalance of money supply and money demand. Consequently, he argues that well-designed monetary arrangements and policies are important to the success of any free-market economic system. Similarly, he insists that defects in the existing monetary arrangements in “capitalist” countries are manifestly not inherent in capitalism but are “alterable consequences” of the misguided or even mischievous interventions of government.
