This sound primer of basic economics tells all you ever wanted to know but were afraid to ask about money, the market, prices, monopoly, competition, land, labor, capital, entrepreneurs, the Federal Reserve, and the distribution of wealth. For those desiring to educate themselves in economic principles, Carson will give you the tools to debate the warmed-over socialism presented by today's media.
Carson defines and describes all of the major political-economic systems of the past thousand years. Feudalism, mercantilism, free enterprise, capitalism, welfarism, and communism are each allotted a chapter in the concluding section. The basics are all covered in clear, plain English, and Carson even manages to make economics interesting.
"As narrator, Hurt has a pleasant vocal quality…He succeeds by making the most of his instrument and treating the book almost as if it were a musical score written within that range."—Talking Book Review
