If you were to create a 10 book reading list that taught people austrian views on money, banking, economic history, and all other parts of the austrian school, as well as austrian critiques of keynesianism and socialism, what would it be?

Gary North has a particularly relevant list.

A 10 book reading list with one book for each category is what i'm looking for.

so...

1.Money

2.Banking

3.Business Cycle

4.Capital and Interest

5.Inflation and/or Deflation

6.Criticism of socialism

7.Criticism of keynesianism

8.Economic history

9.praxeology

10.overall introduction
