    Sometimes in studying economics, I come across terms related to these subjects that I don’t know yet and I would like to know if there a number of differing views on these topics, or if any book I order will be good?
    Can anyone recommend some good college textbooks on these?

    Thanks

    You might consult the book by Joseph Calandro, Applied Value Investing.

    http://www.amazon.com/Applied-Value-Investing-Application-Acquisitions/dp/0071628185?tag=duckduckgo-ffsb-20

    Also, read Mises Daily articles by Frank Shostak.

    Finally, Guido Huelsmann is working on a book on finance.

    Any idea when Guido Huelsmann’s finance book will be out?
    Are there a number of differing schools of thought on finance like there are in economics and philosophy, or can I trust more or less any college textbook on it?

    Dr. Huelsmann’s book is in print in German. The English translation should be out soon, hopefully, by the end of the year.

    Similar to economics, there is a mainstream in finance dominated by mathematical formalism. Most introductory textbooks on finance, then, will present only this dominate view. Alternatives include value investing, mentioned above, and subjective investment appraisal, see the work of David J. Rapp.

    In my Financial Markets and Institutions course at Grove City College, I use the textbook by Meir Kohn, Financial Institutions and Markets. He also has a textbook on Money, Banking, and Financial Markets.

    Skousen’s A Viennese Waltz Down Wall St (Austrian Economics for Investors) and Spitznagel’s “The Dao of Capital” may be of interest.

    Neither of these are textbooks of course.

    What’s the name of Huelsmann’s book? I’m having trouble finding anything recent on Amazon.

    Thank you

    I was wondering if anyone had suggestions on solid textbooks on accounting? I would say that I know the basics fairly well but would like to go in to more detail.

    Thanks.

    Guido Huelsmann’s book is in print in German. The English edition will be out by the end of 2016.

    For accounting book, you might ask Dr. David Rapp.
