    The government is not a neutral arbiter of truth. It never has been. It never will be. Doubt everything. John Stossel does. A self-described skeptic, he has dismantled society's sacred cows with unerring common sense. Now he debunks the most sacred of them all: our intuition and belief that government can solve our problems. In No, They Can't, the New York Times best-selling author and Fox News commentator insists that we discard that idea of the "perfect" government - left or right - and retrain our brain to look only at the facts, to rethink our lives as independent individuals - and fast.

    Story

    I teach college economics and I will be assigning this book to my students in the future. John Stossel doesn't disappoint as a writer or narrator. I think this is the best new book out there that uses good (as opposed to bad) economic theory to describe some of the most controversial topics in present day politics. Most people don't understand economics, especially the general public. Even many who are authoring books on the economic crisis, health care, and various other important topics do not seem to have ever had basic economics. John Stossel covers all the big topics while sharing his life experiences. These experiences have taught him one of the most important lessons in economics - things are not always what they seem. Once you understand basic economics, things start to look completely different. You start to see reality rather than fantasy. Kudos, John.
