Tibor, Manny, and I developed the plan for what became the Reason Foundation ...

Book Note: Rothbard: Man, Economy, and State: A Treatise on Economic Principles [PDF], by Manuel S. Klausner, New York University Law Review, Jun 1963
Review of Rothbard's Man, Economy, and State with emphasis on areas of interest to lawyers
Since the economic revolution ushered in by the New Deal, the unhampered free market system has been regarded as ill-suited to the needs of the modern, industrialized American society. We live in an age in which the government has assumed a steadily expanding role in the economy ... Despite this manifest necessity for economic education as a part of the preparation for the practice of law, such training has been neglected in the curriculum of most American law schools. Serious study of volumes such as Man, Economy, and State could alleviate this problem.
