The book is supposed to be a short version and a modern version of Human action Most people who plan to read Human Action by Mises should probably go through this book first Admittedly I was considering moving on to Human Action after this book but now I don't feel like I have the will any I am no longer convinced that that book is precise enough The best part of the book is the beginning Murphy goes through uite a few interesting discussions and I find his arguments for diminishing marginal utility much clearer and lucid than Mises or Rothbard On the other hand I feel like there is a lack of defense given as to why THESE definitions should be employed Neoclassical economics uses good to denote physical goods Austrians use it to denote some kind of psychic phenomenon I would like some philosophy of what exactly makes definitions better or worse Probably the most disappointing aspect is the calculation problem discussion I find that the language used is very imprecise it isn't clear what EXACTLY the planner is trying to achieve Suppose the planner ONLY wanted to ensure that everybody had a house which he would specify does he have a calculation problem I don't think so Similarly his discussion of the business cycle seems overly short while I like the metaphor of the builder trying to build a house that uses bricks than he has I find that the metaphor to be insufficiently defended and such may confuse than it enlightens When he discusses the Naive productivity theory of interest he seems to give a straight up Net present value example But doesn't really explain the link or innovation relative to the NPV Anyway it's a good book but I think it could have been clearer of course I appreciate that he is trying to condense a 900 page book into 300 pages
