  1. It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest.

    • “…We address ourselves, not to their humanity but to their self-love, and never talk to them of our own necessities but of their advantages.” … ‘the Invisible Hand’ from Adam Smith’s book The Wealth Of Nations!!! I am working hard on developing abetter footing on economics. I obviously subscribe to the Austrian School theories… I took a moment to check out your blog, Tony. I like it. I will spend a lot of time visiting because I definitely have a long way to go in my understanding… As a matter of point, I never took an economics class in my life so I consider myself freshman level if not perhaps even going all the way back to a pre-school level of understanding. LOL

      Thank you for visiting Questioning With Boldness… and for commenting. I look forward to hearing from you again and I would love any insights that you may have or suggestions for reading materials. Judging by your blog, you have a good base of knowledge going!

      • Thanks for the kind words. Might I make a suggestion? You say that you are interested in economics, and I think the best book for your introduction would be Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt. I am a huge fan of Hazlitt as he is a tremendous writer and can explain complex concepts very clearly. It should be available free online and it is not too long.
