|Capitalism: A Treatise on Economics|
Capitalism: A Treatise on Economics is a treatise by American economist George Reisman. The theme of the book is the natural harmony of self-interests—of businessmen, wage earners, and consumers—under capitalism. It is based on an integration of the theories of the Austrian School and the doctrines of the British classical economists. It is considered a magnum opus of Austrian economics.
Three chapters of the text which deal with price controls, shortages and the gas-line calamity of the 1970s were originally published as a standalone book titled Government Against the Economy.
