Williams, Jane A., and Daniels, Kathryn. Economics: A Free Market Reader (published in 2004 by Bluestocking Press, P. O. Box 1014, Placerville, CA 95667). This book includes a selection of articles that originally appeared in The Freeman, a monthly study journal of The Foundation for Economic Education. They were compiled by Bettina Bien Greaves and reprinted in Free Market Economics: A Basic Reader. Thirteen of those articles were selected by Jane A. Williams. Original thought and comprehension questions were provided by her and Kathryn Daniels. The authors of the articles include David (Davy) Crockett and Ludwig von Mises. Bluestocking Press is a libertarian-oriented publishing company that provides study materials especially in economics and history that many homeschoolers use. This free market reader is intended to provide supplemental material to accompany a study of Bluestocking’s Whatever Happened to Penny Candy? by Richard J. Maybury, which we used as the basis for our study of economics in our older son Mark’s senior year.
