The cover of the second edition. I’d forgotten about the first of the cover endorsements. It was provided by a reviewer at Choice which is the magazine subscribed to by libraries to help them choose which books to buy.
Free Market Economics is virtually a must read for serious economists…. Highly recommended.
The second edition should be available in about a month.
Catallaxy is such a fund of insight and knowledge. That is very likely the mill from which the plaque has been modelled. I wished to have a cover that showed a water mill made of clay because the two most important influences on me have been John Stuart Mill and the English economist, Henry Clay. My wife, bless her, found just such a combination on the net as the plaque was being sold just then. I therefore bought it, photographed it and now the clay representation of a mill is on the cover. I also like it because it is both nineteenth century and part of the productive apparatus of an economy. And it fits in with my understanding of Jean-Baptiste Say whose factory producing textiles was driven by a water mill. Finally, I just think it’s beautiful. I could not think of a better cover. My profound thanks to Ant for conjuring the origins up.
