First edition of the Liberty Fund edition of Kirzner’s classic Austrian School text. Octavo, original cloth, patterned endpapers. Signed by Israel M. Kirzner on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Edited and with an introduction by Peter J. Boettke and Frederic Sautet.
Written the year of Mises's death, this is the book that brought new prominence to the Austrian theory of the entrepreneur. Kirzner views him as the discoverer of opportunities in the competitive process, and contrasts this view with the general equilibrium view-which defines away the entrepreneur-and the Schumpeterian view that discovery is always disequilibrating.
