    The foundations of capitalism are being battered by a flood of altruism, which is the cause of the modern world's collapse. This was the view of Ayn Rand, a view so radically opposed to prevailing attitudes that it constituted a major philosophic revolution. In this series of essays, she presented her stand on the persecution of big business, the causes of war, the default of conservatism, and the evils of altruism.

    "Great Book. Should be required reading!"
    Overall

    This is one of those books that should be required reading. Regardless of your beliefs, one should at a minimum understand this side of the coin.

  • The New Paradigm for Financial Markets: The Credit Crisis of 2008 and What It Means

    In the midst of one of the most serious financial upheavals since the Great Depression, George Soros writes about the origins of the crisis and proposes a set of policies that should be adopted to confront it. Soros places the current crisis in the context of his decades of study of how individuals and institutions handle the boom and bust cycles that now dominate global economic activity.

    Soros makes an invaluable contribution to our understanding of the great credit crisis and its implications for our nation and the world.

    David says: "What you take away, you'll have earned."
    "Very well Narrarated"
    Overall

    George Soros doesn't lack an ego, this is clear in all of his books. I do like to try to see things from his point of view. Reflexivity makes some sense but I am not sure it is really that new of an idea. I would rate this book average. Probably worth the listen or read but don't pick this over real theory if you are trying to learn more about economics.

    Basic Economics has been written with the thought that learning economics should be not only a relaxed experience but also an enjoyable one.

    Knitting Maniac says: "Insufferable narrator, clear and interesting book"
    "Great Book! Sub Par Reading?"
    Overall

    This books is certianly a book that everyone should read or listen too. The only thing I didn't like was narrarator was choppy. It was bearable but tough.
