Economist - David Friedman

David Friedman is the son of economists Milton Friedman and Rose Friedman. He is one of the Chicago School economists too. He is a PhD. in Physics and has taught economics and law (AP of Econs, Professor of Law).

Some of his books:
  • The Machinery of Freedom
  • Price Theory: An Intermediate Text
  • Hidden Order: The Economics of Everyday Life
  • Law’s Order: What Economics Has to Do with Law and Why It Matters
  • Future Imperfect: Technology and Freedom in an Uncertain World

David Friedman’s website; blog (I have put into my bloglist) and
his books, book chapters, papers, detailed course outlines etc..
(Many webbed drafts, sample chapters are available.)

I like these 2 books by David Friedman: Law’s Order and Hidden Order.
The rest I haven’t browsed through.
Law’s Order links economics to law whereas Hidden Order links economics to everyday life issues.

I think I’ll like the book Future Imperfect. It is a book linking economics, laws and technology.

There is a portion "Living Paper: An Open Source Project" in his website which are software programs/simulations to teach economics. Some programs are available.
