    Did Economics in One esson focus purely on the free market system? Was the author in favour of such a system?

    I'll check out Muray Rothbard's book, never heard of it before. Go raibh maith agat.
    Rap videos can also be most instructive:

    I'd definitely recommend Wealth of Nations

    It's not actually a "capitalist manifesto". Smith outlines how an economy works and why interference rarely has the desired effect, but it most certainly does not speak of "Capitalism" as we know it today.

    Smith is a huge intellectual force and that comes across in his writing which is superbly written. I think you'll be interested to discover how the origin of Capitalist theory bares little relation to what "Capitalists" now preach.

    Yeah, what I'm trying to do now is get a book comparing the two. Then I might start reading books focusing on one or the other, e.g. The Communist Manifesto, Wealth of Nations etc.

    Although when I'm looking for books on socialism, that does not necessarily mean communism.
