    Introducing… Ronald Reagan Live! Listen to live radio broadcast recordings of former President Ronald Reagan at his political best. Spanning several historical decades, Reagan's 1,000+ radio deliveries offered commentary on the spectrum of domestic, national, and international events that occurred throughout his lifetime, both prior to and during his unprecedented three-term presidency.

  • Mises: The Last Knight of Liberalism

    Story
    (18)

    Here is a magisterial book for today and the ages, one that inspires awe for both the subject and the author who accomplished the seemingly impossible: a sweeping intellectual biography, constructed from original sources, of the 20th century's most astonishing dissident intellectual. It has the apparatus of a great scholarly work but the drama of a classic novel.

    Lee Robinson says: "Ludwig von Mises bio with his ideas"
    "Much more content than I expected"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It comprehensively describes the history and teachings of the Austrian School of Economics as well as how that school related to other schools of economics at the time.


    What other book might you compare Mises to and why?

    Human Action by Ludwig himself.


    What does Paul Strikwerda bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Constantly interesting inflection which keeps even the more tedious sections interesting.
