F.A. Hayek.Deep Freeze---a great read.This month as the retail season gets into gear, our staff thought we’d talk economics. Hey, we promise, it won’t be boring.

October’s Book: Rise of ISIS

Even the clever, libertarian lemur doesn’t go far enough for Rose.This is a book that you will move from purse to purse, as you try to reconcile its content.Given the current beefs in the libertarian community over who has the bigger va-jay and is more libertarian, and as Stefan Molyneux learns the hard way that it isn’t a good idea to say S&M is creepy to a man that has authored a book about how healthy a little hogtying can be before breakfast, this month PD is digging deep into fundamental libertarianism with Larken Rose’s The Most Dangerous Superstition.

July’s Book: The Constitution of the United States

When the people asked for the Constitution to be used by the President, I don’t that is what they had in mind.From the Preamble to the Bill of Rights, it’s a good read and a better protection against the government than a Nicolas Sparks novel. A little shocked by our July pick of the US Constitution? While the Home and Garden Television Network might be quick to have you show your patriotism by kitting out your picnic table to with Ole’ Glory under Aunt Beatrice’s potato salad, our staff’s move to spotlight The United States Constitution has very little to do with jingoism and more to do with calling out the elephants in the room.
