An Important Message About
and Ordering From It

  Dear Visitor:

    TJS now makes numerous titles available that visitors to its web site actually order from, not from TJS, and which are shipped by, not by TJS. On such sales, TJS receives a commission.

    Without going into the major advantages that we expect to derive from this arrangement, we need to stress the importance of visitors not attempting to mix their online orders, i.e., of not attempting to go back and forth between TJS's shopping cart and's shopping cart. The effect of such a procedure is to corrupt your order, e.g., to make the same item appear a multiple number of times. So please be sure you complete your online order  from TJS before turning to order  from

    Once you begin ordering from, you can go back and forth between  TJS's descriptions of  items and Amazon's shopping cart. The vehicle is the Amazon logo next to the TJS description of the item, and the back button on your browser. Clicking the Amazon logo next to the TJS description of the item brings you to Amazon's description of the item and the opportunity to add it to your cart on Clicking the back button two times, will return you from Amazon's cart to the TJS site, where you left off. You can then click on an logo next to another TJS description, and so on.

    In fact, why not try it out now, with the two examples immediately below. (You don't have to actually buy these items from Amazon, because you can empty your cart or simply disconnect from Amazon at any time.)

Eugen von Böhm-Bawerk, Capital and Interest (3 vols. in one or three separate volumes). This classic contains not only Böhm-Bawerk's own theory of capital and interest and his answer to the Marxian exploitation theory, but also his careful development and elaboration of the principle of marginal utility and the theory of prices. One of its several great contributions is the recognition both that prices often are determined in the first instance by cost of production, as the classical economists maintained, and that when this is the case it is an instance of the operation of the law of diminishing marginal utility. 1202 pp.

BASTLAW.JPG (2787 bytes)Frederic Bastiat, The Law. An economic and moral critique of government interference based on the identification that the government's interference constitutes forcible aggression against the citizens. This essay provides an excellent bridge between the political philosophy of Ayn Rand and economic theory. 76 pp. (P)

     Notice that we've omitted prices in our descriptions of Amazon's offerings. The prices appear on Amazon's site. You'll see the price as soon as you click on the Amazon logo and thus bring up the item on Amazon's site.



P. S. Please be sure to see the new, electronically live version of Reisman's extensive bibliography in Capitalism. Almost every entry in the bibliography is now a link to Amazon's offering of the item. The bibliography has been added to our web site and we urge you to download it and to feel free to distribute it to your friends and associates. For more information, click here.
