Now you can learn the school of economic thought that politicians, mainstream economic professors and Paul Krugman don't want you to know about — right in the palm of your hand.
The Civitas Institute's Austrian Economics app is now available for free download in Google Play and the iTunes store, just click the appropriate logo below:
Those being drawn to the liberty movement, and the "Austrian School" of economics specifically, will now be able to access the foundations of Austrian theory in the palm of their hand. This is the next logical step in utilizing the latest technology to spread the ideas so many of us hold dear.
In addition to laying out logically the core economic principles that serve as the foundation of economic theory, the app also explores Austrian analysis of common economic fallacies and public policy. And of course what Austrian economics app would be complete without sections explaining business cycle theory, money and the Fed?
In addition to the content provided, the app also includes links to dozens of articles, essays and even video lectures exploring Austrian economic concepts in greater detail.
A special thanks must be extended to Dr. Paul Cwik, Professor of Economics and Finance at the University of Mount Olive and associate scholar at the Ludwig von Mises Institute, for his role serving as academic advisor for the app.
