Ensayos de Economía Política

by Jesús Huerta de Soto

Madrid: Union Editorial, 2015

Huerta de Soto, a Spanish economist of the Austrian School, is a professor at King Juan Carlos University in Madrid and a prolific writer. This new collection makes available some of his most important essays since the publication of his seminal 2002 work, Nuevos Estudios de Economía Política. They focus on the main contributions of the Austrian School, and elaborate on the work and ideas of some of its principal exponents — Hayek, Mises, Murray Rothbard, and Israel Kirzner, among others. The book demonstrates the rich variety of applications that the Austrian approach has for analysing and understanding the economic and political challenges of our day, and offers scholars a glimpse of the evolution in Huerta de Soto’s own thinking.
