    In his new book, economist Dean Baker debunks the myth that conservatives favor the market over government intervention. In fact, conservatives rely on a range of "nanny state" policies that ensure the rich get richer while leaving most Americans worse off. It's time for the rules to change. Sound economic policy should harness the market in ways that produce desirable social outcomes: decent wages, good jobs, and affordable health care.

    "More of a Fantasy Title than a non-fiction title"

    Any additional comments?

    The audio quality of the is book is on par with everything else on this service, excellent. The narrator was also of a high quality as expected. The fact that this was a free title was quite obvious immediately. The story is by far the worst part of the title. This is not an audible problem, you can only do so much with the material you are given. In this case, the material was far below the standard you might expect from a child's picture book. If the author's other works are on par with this title, then I have culled my authors by one.
