I, Pencil

Not many short stories can claim an introduction written by Milton Friedman that mentions both Adam Smith's thoughts on the invisible hand and Friedrich Hayek's thoughts on the importance of dispersed knowledge, but Leonard E. Read's short story I, Pencil is able too claim just that. Few other authors can bring the making of a pencil and the free market together in such a basic and understandable way.
