Publisher's Summary

Participating in the economy is a part of everyday life, yet much of what is commonly accepted as fact is wrong. Keynesian schoolteachers and the liberal media have filled the world with politically correct errors that myth-busting professor Robert Murphy sets straight.

Murphy explains hot topics like outsourcing (why it's good for Americans) and zoning restrictions (why they're not). Just like the other books in the P.I.G. series, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Capitalism pulls no punches. Murphy defends the free market on such issues as safety regulations, racial discrimination, and child-labor laws, in a breezy manner that is anything but textbook-like. The Politically Incorrect Guide to Capitalism sets the record straight on everything you thought you knew about economics.

    "Great book"
    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book to anyone who is old enough vote to and want to understand why some government policies will never work.

    "Bile"

    This book, which could have been a useful guide, epitomizes the confrontationalist approach that -- whether from the left or (as in this case) from the right -- characterizes so much of what passes for political insight today. The gems of wisdom and insight that do appear are smothered under an overload of bile.

    Don't bother unless your mind is already made up and you simply seek affirmation.

    "Worthless"

    The book begins with praise for Rush Limbaugh's influence on the author's father and continues extolling the merits of capitalism over a Soviet style government managed economy of yesteryear. This book might have been useful 50 years ago and will appeal now to Ian Rand devotees. The only thing less useful than no serious solutions is fantasy.
