Professor Herbener,

I recognize that this is not directly related to the coursework, but I have a somewhat odd request for suggestions for reading materials that I would very much appreciate if you could point me in the direction of.

I plan to go to law school, and I really want to help businesses get out from under the boot of our government and to help them navigate the tax and regulatory codes. I am planning on going to Albany in New York State to get my undergrad in Financial Market Regulation…partly because it’s very interesting to me and partly because I want to learn how to work around the regulations to help businesses. But I know that it’s going to be an onslaught of indoctrination about the virtues and necessity of Keynesian tinkering. I’d like to go into it with a solid understanding of the Austrian view of the financial market regulations.

Can you suggest any book(s)/literature that evaluates the main regulations in a comprehensive and substantive manner from an Austrian standpoint?

As always, I greatly appreciate your time.
