los lmites de la libertad

Los límites de la libertad Por James M. Buchanan


Los límites de la libertad es una obra fundamental en el recorrido teórico de Buchanan. En ella, el pensamiento del autor se aparta de los diagnósticos positivos, que caracterizaron su trabajo previo, para centrarse en cuestiones de índole normativa cuyo eje es una indagación acerca de cómo deben ordenarse los asuntos políticos a fin de garantizar mejores resultados sociales. “Como han hecho tantos antes que yo -escribe el autor-, examino las bases para una sociedad de hombres y mujeres que quieren ser libres pero que reconocen los límites inherentes que la interdependencia social impone sobre ellos. La libertad individual no puede carecer de fronteras, pero las mismas fuerzas que hacen necesarios algunos límites pueden, si se les permite, restringir la amplitud de la libertad humana mucho más allá de lo sostenible”.

The Man Versus the State: With Six Essays on Government, Society, and Freedom By Herbert Spencer
Introduction by Albert Jay Nock
Foreword by Eric Mack

Political Thought

Spencer develops various specific disastrous ramifications of the wholesale substitution of the principle of compulsory cooperation—the statist principle—for the individualist principle of voluntary cooperation. His theme is that “there is in society . . . that beautiful self-adjusting principle which will keep all its elements in equilibrium. . . . The attempt to regulate all the actions of a community by legislation will entail little else but misery and compulsion.”

Market Theory and the Price System By Israel M. Kirzner
Edited by Peter J. Boettke and Frédéric Sautet


The second volume in Liberty Fund’s Collected Works of Israel M. Kirzner series, Market Theory and the Price System was published in 1963 as Kirzner’s first (and only) textbook. This volume presents an integrated view of Austrian price theory. The basic aim of Market Theory is to utilize the tools of economic reasoning to explain the market process. The unique framework Kirzner develops for microeconomic analysis, following Mises and Hayek, examines errors in decision-making, entrepreneurial profit, and competition as a process of discovery and learning.

Monetary and Economic Policy Problems Before, During, and After the Great War By Ludwig von Mises
Edited by Richard Ebeling


The present volume is devoted to some of Mises’s earliest writings. As with the second volume in the series, the articles that compose this book include Mises’s policy memoranda, essays, and speeches that were found in a formerly secret KGB archive in Moscow. The articles have two primary focuses: First, they reveal Mises’s thoughts on the monetary, fiscal, and general economic policy problems of the Austro-Hungarian Empire before and during World War I; and second, they focus on his thoughts on the new postwar Austrian Republic after the dismantling of the Habsburg monarchy.
