    Who was the greater economist--Adam Smith or Charles Darwin? The question seems absurd. Darwin, after all, was a naturalist, not an economist. But Robert Frank, New York Times economics columnist and best-selling author of The Economic Naturalist, predicts that within the next century Darwin will unseat Smith as the intellectual founder of economics.

    Mark says: "Ivory tower theorys that lack depth"
    "Distracting and Misleading."

    Story

    The title of this book seems to be designed to bring in an audience that establishes how Natural Selection and Economics meet and why the economy works the way it does. What I found was nothing but a propoganda book for socialism.

    Every reference to economics in the first chapter is taken from one extreme to the other. "You think government controlling everyone through social engineering is bad? You must approve of murder!".

    It seems to pick and chose from the edges of economics and then layers it on thick with a massive political agenda. Not a recommendation I would give for anyone who's interested in learning about economics, except maybe to see what incorrect, manipulative and skewed opinions might be brought forwards.
