Lawrence Mitchell

Thanks for visiting.  I’m Larry Mitchell, professionally known as Lawrence E.  Mitchell.  For almost the past three decades, I’ve written on matters of law, economics, business, and philosophy.  I’m looking forward to discussing the application of these and new ideas to contemporary problems.

My books include The Speculation Economy:  How Finance Triumphed Over IndustryCorporate Irresponsibility:  America’s Newest Export, and Stacked Deck:  A Story of Selfishness in America.

The motivating forces behind my work are my concern with vulnerable populations in every context and my interest in a sustainable and prosperous society.

You can order my books here.  You can download my papers here.


These are my friends, Adam (Smith) and David (Hume).
