Knowledge and Power
- The Information Theory of Capitalism and How It Is Revolutionizing Our World
- By: George Gilder
- Narrated by: David Cochran Heath
- Length: 10 hrs and 9 mins
America’s struggling economy needs a better philosophy than the college student’s lament,“I can’t be out of money, I still have checks in my checkbook!” We've tried a government spending spree, and we've learned it doesn't work. Now is the time to rededicate our country to the pursuit of free-market capitalism, before we’re buried under a mound of debt and unfunded entitlements. But how do we navigate between government spending that’s too big to sustain and financial institutions that are "too big to fail?"

Misuse of ideas
Lots of big words from engineering and business that make no sense because of wrong context. Educated but misinformed. Terrible distortion of knowlrdgre.

- An Optimist's Guide to Thriving in the Age of Accelerations
- By: Thomas L. Friedman
- Narrated by: Oliver Wyman
- Length: 19 hrs and 47 mins
In his most ambitious work to date, Thomas L. Friedman shows that we have entered an age of dizzying acceleration - and explains how to live in it. Due to an exponential increase in computing power, climbers atop Mount Everest enjoy excellent cell phone service, and self-driving cars are taking to the roads. A parallel explosion of economic interdependency has created new riches as well as spiraling debt burdens.

I thought his earlier books were much the same but this one is very relevant and appropriate in todays world.
