Based on Carl Menger’s Principles of Economics, Ludwig von Mises’ Human Action, and Murray Rothbard’s Man, Economy, and State, this course covers the concepts of human action, scarcity, opportunity cost, time preference, capital, trade, money, and prices. You can see the full course syllabus here.
This course is taught through ten lectures and discussion sessions, lasting 1 hour each. Purchasing the course provides access to all these lectures and seminars, in audio and video format, as well as detailed class notes.
