    Page 54: par. 0: the numerator in fraction "1/20" has a letter "l" instead of a "1"

    Similarly, a mill converting wheat into flour may have a useful life of 20 years, in which case we could say that l/20 of the mill was used up in each year's production of flour.

    Page 103: par. 3, near very bottom of page: "e" in price is not italic

    The price is the rate of exchange between two commodities expressed in terms of one of the commodities.

    Page 169: par. 3: en dash should be an em dash:

    In each case, different concrete considerations enter into the formation of the value scales–such as time preference in the case of credit exchanges; and this permits more to be said about the various specific types of exchanges.

    Page 550: first par. in section 8: "s" in "adds" is not italic

    In the real world there is an additional entrepreneurial (or “risk”) component, which adds to the interest rate in particularly risky ventures, and in accordance with the degree of risk.

    Page 600: Footnote 48: October "l" should be October "1", and the "e" in "idem" is not italic.

    [...] R.H. Coase, “Business Organization and the Accountant,” The Accountant, October l–November 26, 1938; and idem, “Full Costs, Cost Changes, and Prices” in Business Concentration and Price Policy, pp. 392–94; [...]

    Page 630: par. 0: the "s" in "sovereignty" is not italic.

    Rather than “consumers’ sovereignty,” it would be more accurate to state that in the free market there is sovereignty of the individual: the individual is sovereign over his own person and actions and over his own property.

    Page 793: Footnote 28: the "e" in "idem" is not italic.

    Irving Fisher, The Rate of Interest (New York, 1907), chap. v, xiv; idem, Purchasing Power of Money, pp. 56–59.

    Page 940: Footnote 54 carried over: "s" in "deficits" is not italic

    In contrast to the present method of national income accounting, Kuznets would have eliminated all government deficits from its “productive contribution.”

    Page 1049: par. 0: "e" in "the" is not italic

    The laissez-faire theorists (who are here joined by almost all other writers) attempt to redeem their position from this glaring contradiction by asserting that a purely free-market defense service could not exist and that therefore those who value highly a forcible defense against violence would have to fall back on the State (despite its black historical record as the great engine of invasive violence) as a necessary evil for the protection of person and property.

    Page 1178: par. 0: The "a" in "accumulated" is not italic.

    [...] is taxed on an income of 40 when his income was only 10. The final tax, therefore, largely becomes one on accumulated capital rather than on income.

    Page 1200: par. 1: "e" in "increase" is not italic.

    Any increase in the capital value of idle land, then, does not reflect a current rent; it merely reflects an upgrading of people's expectations about future rents.

    Page 1375: October "l" should be changed to "October 1"

    Coase, Ronald H. “Business Organization and the Accountant.” Accountant (October l–November 26, 1938).

    Mises Daily Articles (1998-2014)

    Status: First Pass Editting

    This is a long term project, and hopefully by the end there will be the entire collection of Mises Daily Articles in yearly EPUBs.

    It all began when I spotted a post by David Veskler on the Mises Development in December 2011 asking about an EPUB of the Mises Dailies. I had been dabbling in the EPUB format around that time period, and it really piqued my interests. I downloaded the archive which was uploaded, and noticed that any conversion programs were crashing due to the sheer number of HTML files (also these weren't the cleanest HTML files in the world). So I worked on a little program to strip a lot of worthless information out of the HTML files. This made the HTML go from ~150 MB down to ~86 MB.

    The project then laid dormant until early May 2012 when I decided to start working on it again.

    There is still much work to be done, but for now I am going through and cleaning up little mistakes here and there, and trying to make things consistent throughout the entire collection (adding hr tags before the author information, making the classes consistent for easy CSS changes in the future, removing HTML that works on a webpage, but not in the EPUB spec, etc.).

    I have left the HTML for all of the images, so if you are using a program on the PC (or any program which uses a Web backend to render the HTML), and also have an internet connection, the images will be pulled from, and you will most likely be able to see the images/charts perfectly just as if you were reading them on the website. If you are on a device with no internet, or one which follows the EPUB spec more closely, the images will not appear and you will only see text (this is how it is on my Nook). Once I finish cleaning all of the HTML, proofreading, and making sure everything else is correct, I will most likely create two separate EPUB versions. One which does not include images in the EPUB (small size, and will pull images from just as these EPUBs are doing), and one which includes all the images in the file (very large size, will follow the EPUB spec, will be able to be read on all devices hopefully, and save bandwidth costs).
