Pop Econ

At the book store where I work during the day we almost never sell books on economics. In the last year alone there have been very few titles on the subject that have been even moderately successful, and none that have had any “buzz” around them. Not surprisingly this changed a bit when the credit bubble bursts, but I never could have foreseen what has happened over the last few weeks. 

Without going into great detail, not only has Tom Woods‘s book Meltdown become one of the top selling books in the whole store, there has also been an amazing level of interest in titles by Hayek, Mises, Hazlitt and TakiMag’s own Peter Schiff.  Despite my reflexive pessimism, I can’t help but think that Austrian Economics becoming a pop phenomenon is a very good sign.
