An Important Message concerning ordering.

 

While centering on Reisman's book and closely related audiotapes, the program also includes all the extensive reading assignments in the works of the other leading defenders of capitalism that are necessary to gain an advanced knowledge of the subject. In addition, it includes Reisman's syllabi in use in his university classes (in which Capitalism is the main textbook, accompanied by von Mises's Human Action), plus 16 extensive syllabus supplements, and over 1500 study/review questions based on Capitalism.

GEORGE REISMAN'S PROGRAM OF SELF-EDUCATION IN THE ECONOMIC THEORY AND POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY OF CAPITALISM

SALE OF THIS PROGRAM AND ITS  INDIVIDUAL AUDIO COMPONENTS HAS BEEN TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED WHILE WE CONVERT IT FROM AUDIOTAPE TO CDs IN MP3 FORMAT.

For information concerning the specific component(s), click here. 

Reisman's Capitalism is the world's first and only comprehensive, in-depth defense of the capitalist economic system that was written with use as a textbook in mind. Here it is accompanied by the over 86 academic hours of Reisman's audio tapes—the equivalent of almost 6 credits at a college or university—that powerfully reinforce major portions of the text. It is also accompanied by a set of over 1500 study/review questions prepared by Dr. Reisman, as well as by the syllabi and syllabus supplements he uses in teaching from Capitalism in his university classes, and by a newly prepared program syllabus that integrates his book and tapes with extensive readings in the works of Ludwig von Mises, Ayn Rand, the earlier Austrian and classical economists, and others.

Were you to attend one of today's private colleges or universities, you would probably have to pay over $900 per credit. What you would be taught, even at the philosophically best schools, would almost certainly be largely a set of collectivist fallacies, based on a text such as that of Samuelson, or some academic clone of Samuelson. Here, for a fraction of the cost, you can obtain the clearest, most logically consistent, and intellectually powerful exposition of sound economic theory and defense of economic freedom that is available anywhere in the world at the present time. The price—extremely modest in view of what is offered—is $407.50 for the most complete version, i.e., the version that includes both the hardcopy and the new CD of Capitalism. (Sold separately, the components of the program have a total price of $703.)

If you already own Capitalism and do not wish to buy a second copy, you can buy merely the complete set of tapes, along with the study/review questions and syllabus package, for the price of $329. (The price of the electronic 160-page-plus study/review questions and syllabus package sold separately is $15.) If you wish to add the CD of Capitalism, the price is $357.50. Finally, if you wish to add only the hardcopy of Capitalism, the price is $379.

If you have or plan to have any kind of intellectual career, not only as a professional economist, but as a writer or journalist, as a teacher of philosophy, history, literature, psychology, mathematics, or any of the natural sciences, at whatever level; if you are interested in politics, whether as a potential candidate for office or simply as a voter who wants a serious understanding of the issues; if you are a businessman who wants to know how to defend himself and his company from scurrilous attacks; if you are anyone who wants to know what he is talking about when it comes to matters of politics and economics, this program is a necessity for you.

To make the purchase of the program more affordable, it is possible to buy it simply by buying individual components, provided you tell us at the beginning that that is your intention and so signify by purchasing the Reisman's Electronic Program Guide for $15. (It's described below. Its purchase covers the shipping and handling charges for the program.)  You will receive all of the remaining components of the program once your total purchases of components amount to the applicable purchase price, i.e., $407.50, $379, $357.50, or $329, provided this sum is reached within one year of the purchase of the initial component(s). For example, if you buy the hard copy of Capitalism together with the electronic guide to the program for a total of $81.50 on March 1, 2004, and then over the course of the next year, prior to March 1, 2005, buy the set of Dr. Reisman's ten individual lectures and speeches for $109, and two of his tape series that individually sell for $75, you would have expended a total of $344.50. At that point, upon payment of the remaining $34.50, you would receive all the remaining components of the program, i.e., Dr. Reisman's four remaining lecture series, without any additional charge.
