It's too bad that a follower of the constitution like Mr. Scalia is so often in the minority on the court's decisions. But our supreme court has been rewriting the constitution through re-interpretation since the very first supreme court, which was selected by George Washington. I recommend "Original Meanings" by Rakove and "The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Constitution" by Gutzman. These two go well with "Scalia Dissents".
Thomas Sowell is one of my favorites. He has a way of using real world examples to make economics understandable to laymen - it's a shame our politicians don't get it.
I couldn't get thru the first chapter. Von Mises can be hard for a layman to follow anyway, but the added distraction of a reader with British accent made it impossible for a country boy from South Carolina.
The author really did his homework. I was especially interested in how the GM and Chrysler takeovers went down. There was actually some logic in the way the government handled it, and with the quick closure compared to the average bankruptcy, both companies had a much better chance at recovery than they otherwise might have.
If you're still wondering for whom to vote (not just for president), then get this book and see what the stakes are. America, we're Broke! This book lays out the facts. Senator Coburn is the first politician that I've heard admit our "real" debt. $16 trillion is a smoke screen, Our real debt is over $120 Trillion and climbing. There are not enough rich people in the world to pay off this kind of debt. It's the spending, stupid!
This book does a good job of covering the battle between the theories of Keynes and Hayek, and reveals some insights into our 20th century presidents' economic ideas, successes and failures.
This book puts in one place all you need to know to decide if you want another 4 years of the Obamas.
This book is a summary of early Austrian economic historical figures. I learned some new names and may pursue some of them. I was hoping for more detail on their ideas. As an introduction to those who fathered Austrian economic theory it's OK.
Using speakers with Austrian accents was a distraction that made the message hard to follow. Mr. Rukeyser is one of the best narrators around. He should have read the whole book.
That our "honorable" politicians even stoop to murder for money and power, while claiming to be helping the poor and needy citizens of the world.
I've suspected ulterior government motives for decades. This book gives details that make perfect sense as to why we have our tentacles in every corner of the world - enriching the already rich at taxpayer expense.
Maybe - it's pretty depressing and infuriating.
This book makes me mad - that politics in the US has come to this. Our politicians, of which Obama is just one of many, are no longer our employees, but a ruling class who care nothing about the people who put them in power, or the constitution that they swore to uphold and defend - or even the well being of future generations of Americans.
I urge all, but especially those who voted for Obama, to give this a listen and find out what he and his cronies are about when the doors are closed - the Obama that the MSM doesn't show - then ask yourself, "Is this who I want to lead the free world?"
