My Family Treeas Told toLeonard E. Read
“I, Pencil” is a superb case study of freemarkets in action.Half of the world’s eco-nomic problems would vanish if everyonewould read “I, Pencil.”Burton W. Folsom, Jr.Professor of HistoryHillsdale CollegeThere is no better, more easily under-stood, and more fun explanation of thecomplexity of markets than LeonardRead’s “I, Pencil.” It ought to give consid-erable pause when we listen to the arro-gance of politicians who tell us they canmanage an economy better than millions,perhaps billions, of independent decisionmakers in pursuit of their own personalgoals.Its message to would-be planners isto bug out!Walter E.WilliamsJohn M. Olin Distinguished Professorof EconomicsGeorge Mason UniversityThe most valuable truths about econom-ics and liberty can be found in a lowlylead pencil. When my children are oldenough, I will read them a classic littleessay by the late philosopher Leonard E.Read that turns a mundane writinginstrument into an elementary lessonabout free-market capitalism.Michelle MalkinSyndicated columnist
