Online sessions will be held once a week between March 2, 2023 – April 27, 2023, every Thursday at 4 PM GMT.

Each student will be awarded a physical copy of the book along with goodies from Liberty International and an opportunity to interact with the greatest minds from all over the world. Successful applicants will also get access to the Liberty International Alumni Group. During the last session, we will be joined by the author of the book himself. There will be a possibility to interact with the author and ask questions.

About the book

How to Think about the Economy: A Primer

This little book was written to accomplish something big: economic literacy. It is intentionally kept very short to be inviting rather than intimidating. You will gain life-changing understanding of how the economy works in practically no time.

Per Bylund will make you excited about what economics has to offer. Because economic literacy is mind-opening. Sound economic reasoning is an enormously powerful tool for understanding both the economy and society. Economic literacy uncovers what is going on under the surface and why things work out as they do. There is no magic to it. In fact, economic literacy is necessary to properly understand the world.

Short, direct, axiomatically unassailable, and devastating to the mythology of modern economics. This book not only promote Mises’ views, but refutes and attacks the tragicomic orthodoxy of today’s economics mainstream.
