Why do conservatives have such a hard time winning the economic debate in the court of public opinion? Simple, George Gilder says: Conservatives misunderstand economics almost as badly as liberals do. Republicans have been running on tax cut proposals since the era of Harding and Coolidge without seriously addressing the key problems of a global economy in decline. Enough is enough.
Gilder, author of the New York Times best seller Wealth and Poverty, proposes a completely new framework for understanding economic growth that will replace failed 20th-century conservative economics and turn the economic debate - and the country - around.

"George Gilder shows that money is time, and time is real. He is our best guide to our most fundamental economic problem." (Peter Thiel, founder of PayPal)
However this is one of those books I'll have to listen to several times. At some point I hope I will understand the concepts, but I fear it may be beyond me. Someone said of some economic theories that if you don't grasp them in 5 minutes you probably never will. I fear this may describe my aptitude perfectly.
After the first ten minutes I felt for sure, I was not going to like this. After mercilessly tearing through the usual rhetoric; it started to become clear, this guy makes sense.
