the other clearly identifies the root cause of almost all problems we have today. the revision notes were essential as once the topic is understood even the social issues we have today that dont appear to have to do with economics, racism ect., can be linked to problems identified. the reader was excellent for this book. a dryer tone to match the material but just enough emotional input to establish a well thought out convincing argument - without fallacy or subversion
The author explains in a very easy way the main economic processes, maybe because he is a journalist instead of an academic economist. As a Spanish native speaker, for me was very useful the clear pronunciation of this audible book.
I listened to this book because a friend had given a copy to my wife. I'm very glad to now have a much better understanding and way to explain to others why social programs simply don't help. And why redistribution of wealth is a horrible idea economically.
If everyone reads this book we do not have to struggle with wars on anything.
The title should have been: "Why The Government Should Stay Away From Economics And People's Lives".
Warning this is anything but a lesson in economics. It is anti-government, anti-worker, misanthropic, nanny state, neoliberal, dog-whistle, reactionary, conservative bullshit. Advocates loose, uncritical treatment of banks and increased suspicion of employees and democratic institutions. Painfully dated source references. Even asserts that child labor ceased merely because "the economy has improved and they were no longer needed." Discusses the function of banks without mention the profit made on the interest derived on loans. Comically shallow and self-serving arguments from beginning to end. I want a refund. This is not a book. It is a feudal state pamphlet.
