A reader writes:
A friend of mine is a communist and he recently asked me if there was a libertarian/ free market book that I could suggest that might sway his opinion or at least challenge him. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here are some possibilities, in no particular order:
(1) A Farewell to Marx, by David Conway
(2) Marxist and Austrian Class Analysis (journal article, not a book), by Hans-Hermann Hoppe
(3) Two of my own books that might help: the purely economics portions of The Church and the Market, which I wrote as an introduction to Austrian economics, and my 2011 book Rollback, which covers quite a bit of ground.
(4) Or you could go hardcore on him and try For a New Liberty by Murray N. Rothbard.
