Read one SALVO article FREE!

Selected Salvos 2 is now WAS on BookDaily and it includes One FREE Article from the book!

BookDaily encourages authors to post excerpts of their books for readers to read free. They suggest posting an entire chapter, but since my book is only 74 pages long and consists of 20 articles that average 750 words each that means every article is a chapter in itself. And since each article is so short you get to read one whole article gratis.

So I've decided to give you the opening salvo. It set's up the "Playboynomics" meme of the book, which really isn't entirely about Playboynomics or even entirely about economics but once you think about it nearly everything in life has an economic component to it. As Mises pointed out, economics is just Human Action.



Can't afford cumquats for your cumquat soup? Getting haircuts every other month to save a few bucks? Still driving that 1988 Yugo because a down payment for something better is out of your reach? Northwestern University psychology Professor Michael Bailey appreciates your sacrifices. He's using your tax money to pay women $75 a pop to find out, as the New York Post puts it, "what types of audiovisual erotica women find sexually arousing."

(It's "audiovisual erotica" when it's taxpayer funded. If you and I pay our own money to watch it, it's "porno." And don't forget that tax money funds research on "sexual arousal." Without tax money, it's just plain old civil society "horniness.")


Unfortunately my excerpt has disappeared from BookDaily. They must have stamped it with a Sell By Date I didn't know about. Fortunately all is not lost. You can still read the excerpt/full article here:

Thanks anyway BookDaily.


BookDaily finally responded after two weeks. The Selected Salvos 2 page is now back in its accustomed place with the first full article available for your reading pleasure:

Selected Salvos 2 is available in Paperback / ePub / iTunes / Kindle
