Forget about 'derivatives' and the other esoteric culprits for the economic collapse of 2008-2009. The real reason is much simpler than that and Woods skillfully explains why. Woods is an historian who delivers a compelling narrative that hearing, you just know he would have been one of your favorite teachers if you had been in his class.
I was so impressed by it that I have bought and given out many copies of this book. Read it. Highest reviews.
The way economics is explained today is intimidating. Henry Hazlitt takes the intimidation out of it and lays out a common sense masterpiece that half a century later is as relevant today as when it was written.
You don't have to be an academic to understand the common sense that Murphy lays out in The Politically Incorrect Guide to Capitalism. This book will help you identify what you've instinctively sensed has been been wrong with our economic policies and what needs to be done to fix them. From this book go on to read Peter Schiff and Thomas Woods, and other authors who explain the Austrian school of economics thinking.
This book is proof that Keynesian economic thinking is poppy-cock and harmful, as Schiff was able to successfully predict the economic meltdown of 2008-2009 using his Austrian school of economics viewpoint. The only point I took away is that I would have much preferred to hear Peter Schiff narrate the book himself.
Scaramouche is a totally satisfying story in the tradition of Dumas ("Three Musketeers") and Hugo ("Les Miserables") by a an author who may not be as well read today as he deserves. Excellent story, excellent performance. Every Sabatini book that I have read is fun.
Like all Dan Brown books, this is a fairly predictable pot boiler, although in this book more than his others, Brown delivers a religious tract echoing new age beliefs that man needs to discover that he is his own God.
