I decided to buy this book as an introduction to economics, mainly because John Lewis from ARI recommended it.
Book webpage: http://objectiveeconomics.net/
Being new to economics I like the book so far, but then I saw this review by the Objective standard: http://www.theobject...up-buechner.asp
And then there were some controversy online over this quote from page 1, (the preface):
"To the best of my knowledge, this book represents the first attempt to rewrite economics in the light of Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism."
- Which is claimed by some to be a dishonest statement and an insult to a "George Reisman" (whom I know nothing about) who has previosly written a book on economics with an Objectivist theme.
What to make of it? Should this criticism cast doubt on the value of the content of this book? I'd like to hear what you economically literate think about it.
