    IMO, this author has a strong bias toward classical economics. The book is a long argument in favor of (his view of) Adam Smith and against Marx and Keynes. I tired of this by two thirds of the way through and stopped listening. On the other hand, I have a lot to learn about economics and did learn from this book.
