If it had been grounded in real economic theory instead of political fantasy
Not have written it so I woiuld not have wasted my money
The argument of this book: we can go back to the wonderful days of the 18th century with a few extremely rich and everyone else very poor, if only we could abolish government (except for law enforcement.) The writers, like many right-wing extremists, fail to understand that in a world of so many firearms, their policies would lead to social revolution and the destruction of the very capitalism they worship.
and other Cato Institute crap, you'll love this. Lots of theory based around a lame story of three guys on an island. i.e. no references to the real world. They bill it as a fun, entertaining story. It's not. It's dull. I could only get through the first three chapters. Bleech.
I didn't mind the parables in the Bible. They made sense and seemed to fit life but this book's creation of a parable or story was nothing more then a justification for their political views. Of course everything makes sense in the story but in real life there are many other variables that come into play and there story either ignored them or glossed over them. I felt talked down to listening to this book. It did not open up my understanding of the economy or the way things work in our society.

The content is reasonable. However, the pronunciation of the reader is terrible. You might want to listen to the preview before buying to first determine if you can understand the nasal reader.
