Books that have influenced the Austrian Economist;
“Notes on Democracy” By H L Mencken: Wonderfully written. I have never enjoyed anything in the recent past than Mencken’s elitist views. I wonder why I never read him before. He has a deep contempt for the unthinking masses, which I happen to share. He writes, (on the common man): “A politician by instinct and a statesman by divine right, he has never heard of “The Republic” or “Leviathan.” A Feinschmecker of pornography, he is unaware of Freud.”
“How to Develop a Super Power Memory” by Harry Lorayne: I read it when I was 17 and just out of school. I owe my near-photographic memory to this book, among many others. It helped me realize that our mind has several powers which we don’t even know of.
