Boettke: Living economics: Yesterday, today, and tomorrow Oakland, CA: The Independent Institute, 2012. xx + 434 Pages. USD 22.95 (paperback) Bruce Yandle Published online: 15 March 2013 Springer Science+Business Media New York 2013 It is a rare book that combines colorful elements of autobiography with lessons in history of thought fortified with offerings of inspired advice for the next generation of passionate economists. Yet this is what Peter Boettke’s Living Economics delivers. Pete is a master craftsman known for his unstinting commitment to teaching both in and outside the conventional classroom. His book is a personal and joyful explanation of encounters with great teachers, both in person and through written wisdom, that enabled him to form his own economic way of thinking and then to bring that emerging pattern of ideas to the classroom. Dedicated to teachers and teaching, the book is a story about the blossoming of Pete Boettke’s brand of Austrian economics, what he terms mainline economics. Not a polemic, but still sparkling with passion, this well written book will be enjoyed by a broad cross section of academics, lovers of ideas, and hopefully young economists and other The Review of Austrian Economics Springer Journals
