Human Action is the single most important work by Von Mises and one of the most influential economic works of the twentieth century. "It should become the leading text of everyone who believes in freedom, in individualism, and in the ability of a free-market economy not only to outdistance any government-planned system in the production of goods and services for the masses, but to promote and safeguard . . . those intellectual, cultural, and moral values upon which all civilization ultimately rests" (Henry Hazlitt).
