The vast majority of Americans were not taught real economics in government school. Government schools won’t teach doctrine that suggests they be abolished. There are a plethora of well-written full-length books on economics by Bastiat, Rothbard, Hazlitt and others.
What is sorely needed, however, is a short readable intro to free market economics that presents the essential principles and invites further reading. I have written just such a pamphlet. It was recently described by a blogger as “the briefest, simplest, most straightforward explication of free-market, laissez-faire, libertarian economics I know.”
Your non-impossible mission is an easy one. Print out 100 of these pamphlets and distribute to neighbors, friends, and relatives. Ask them to do the same if they like what read. Let us know the results.
