John Medaille: The Political Economy of Distributism
by John Medaille
Chapter I: What's in a Name?
Chapter II: If it Ain't Broke
Chapter III: Political Economy as a Science
Chapter IV: The Purpose of an Economy
Chapter V: Equilibrium, or The Tao of Economics
Chapter VI: Justice and the Political Economy

This book is extremely valuable as a critique of the operating assumptions of orthodox marginalist economics, although Austrians may fault it for focusing primarily on the dominant neoclassical school. I especially recommend the chapters on equlibrium and the fictitious commodities. The chapter on land, in particular, is an excellent introduction to Ricardian rent.
