Bibliography on Austrian Economics

This is another of my bibliographies, and, like the others, it is a work in progress. And, no, I haven’t converted to Austrian economics, but I believe in actually reading what the opposition think. I want to concentrate here more on recent literature, though I have included some older work by Mises, Rothbard and Hayek.
