Human Action

By Von Mises, Ludwig




Human Action: A Treatise on Economics is the magnum opus of the Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises. It presents a case for laissez-faire capitalism based on Mises' praxeology, or rational investigation of human decision-making. It rejects positivism within economics. It defends an a priori epistemology and underpins praxeology with a foundation of methodological individualism and laws of apodictic certainty.

Human Action: A Treatise on Economics.

Von Mises, Ludwig

New Haven: Yale University Press, 1949. First edition, second printing (published one month after the first) of the economist's magnum opus. Octavo, rebound in cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author, "To Mr. John Rohr Ludwig Mises Dec. 19, 1968." In near fine condition. Laid in is the rare index of this title by Vern Crawford. Human Action is the single most important work by Von Mises and one of the most influential economic works of the twentieth century. "It should become the leading text of everyone who believes in freedom, in individualism, and in the ability of a free-market economy not only to outdistance any government-planned system in the production of goods and services for the masses, but to promote and safeguard . . . those intellectual, cultural, and moral values upon which all civilization ultimately rests" (Henry Hazlitt).

HUMAN ACTION: A Treatise on Economics

Ludwig Von Mises

New Haven: Yale University Press, 1949. 2nd Printing. Hardcover. A fine hardcover book in a very good, lightly edgeworn dustjacket. The book itself is flawless and appears unread. The jacket is clean and bright with two tiny chips: one along the top edge of the front panel measuring 1/8-inch deep by one inch wide and a second off the top of the back panel measuring 1/4-inch deep by 1 3/4 inch wide. An attractive copy of a scarce and important work in economic history. Von Mises was the founder of the Austrain School of economics and the mentor of Friedrich von Hayek. This work is an important study defending free markets as the best motivator of human behavior which will lead to growth and prosperity. A scarce book, especially so in dustjacket.

HUMAN ACTION - A Treatise on Economics in four volumes

von Mises, Ludwig (foreword by Bettina Bien Greaves)

Indianapolis, Indiana: Liberty Fund, 2007. (xix) 1037 pp. in four volumes. Four trade paperbacks presented in a slipcase. Very light signs of use on the slipcase and the books; all with flat, uncreased spine; no interior markings. Please note, these are very heavy and, depending where in the world you are, the shipping may be somewhat more than normal. Ludwig von Mises was the leading exponent of the Austrian School of economics throughout most of the twentieth century. He has long been regarded as a most knowledgeable and respected economist. In Human Action, he explains complex market phenomena as "the outcomes of countless conscious, purposive actions, choices, and preferences of individuals, each of whom was trying as best as he or she could under the circumstances to attain various wants and ends to avoid undesired consequences." These individual choices are the ultimate regulators of the market, determining supply and demand, prices, and, in the end, profit and loss. Although governments can attempt to set prices, individual actions will have the final say through competitive bids for money and products and services. Thus, Mises presents economics as part of a larger science of human action. To be clear, all four volumes of Human Action are present in the slipcase and they appear to be unread.. Later Printing. Paperback. Near Fine. 8vo.
