Man, Economy, and State: A Treatise on Economic Principles, first published in 1962, is a book on economics by Murray Rothbard.

When originally published in 1962, the final eight chapters were removed by the publisher; these were later published as Power and Market in 1970.[1] The 2009 edition published by the Ludwig von Mises Institute combines both books in a single volume which provides a discussion of both microeconomics and macroeconomics.
