The analisis and approach of the economic diferences and how they affect in different manner at each country, they are aspects I have not thougth before, as a supporter of a single currency. People is different, values are too, and certainly, because of that, ones suffer more than others. Amazing. It make me think twice on my preconceptions of economics. Written in a clear and simple way. With a very basic knowledge of economics, it is easy to follow. I strongly recommend it.

The subject is explained with lots of examples, what makes it easy to understand for people without advanced education on economics themes.

It also explains the different view of philosophical schools on human development, which makes clearer the opinions of authors.

I recommend it to any person interested in the motor that pushes the free will against the government controlled economy.

I rated it with five stars because its clarity, I learn some new concepts, and enjoyed it.

I was impressed for the clarity of concepts and the methodology used in such much examples of how economie functions.
A lot of ideals thrown to the floor.
The why and because equality do not function in human beings.
Certainly a lot of discussion could provoke. This kind of books should be translated to many idioms and teached at schools.
I was delighted with the way of developing the history of humanity from the optic of wealth and poverty, and, of course, as the name says, politics. The reder, very clear. A book I will keep for my children.

Even it was written more than 60 years ago, how valid is the way of controlling people. Bad leaders, worst colaborators, could put a Country on its knees by its own "leaders". A lot of analogies or similitudes with todays world of terror, where the "leaders" decide our destiny by means of terror. I missed to have read it many years ago. A good reading. Highly recomended.

This story opens some misunderstandings of westerners believing at India as the paradise of Yoguis and spiritual people. The corruption, the exploit of the less favoured by the system, the ingenuity and naivety of poor children, makes feel sick of some human beings. The worst, it happens elsewhere, at many latinamerican countries, it will be no difference. A great book. A pity it is not widely read and translated to other idioms.
