    I’m putting together a course in Austrian Economics for home-schooled and un-schooled teens at an alternative education center.

    I’ve got Bob Murphy’s “Lessons For The Young Economist” and David Gordon’s “Introduction to Economic Reasoning.” Also Richard Maybury’s “Whatever Happened To Penny Candy.” I don’t know if the Ron Paul Curriculum has an econ course for Grades 10 – 12 yet.

    If any of you have experience creating or teaching such courses, I’d love to hear from you.

    You can view my site at and you can reach me at communomics@gmail.com

    The site is called “The Application of the Principles of Austrian Economics to the Workings of Small-Scale, Local Communities.”



    For some reason, the link to my site doesn’t show. You can find it at



    You might also consider Henry Hazlitt’s Economics in One Lesson:


    And Shawn Ritenour’s Foundations of Economics:



    Mayday: I’m extremely interested in knowing a little more on how you structured the course. I am a 7-12 grade social studies teacher and want to offer an Austrian Economics class at my school but I don’t know where to take it. Meaning, usually in an economics class there are activities and certain assignments the students do to understand the material other than lectures and readings. I’m having a hard time figuring out how to structure the course and make the concepts more understandable for 13-18 year olds.

    Any information would be helpful.
