The power of economic thinking can be explained by seven core principles, which are accountability, investments, economy, incentive, freedom of choice, nondiscrimination, and one price. By understanding and incorporating these principles, better decisions will be made on individual, corporate, and government levels.

To explain this thesis, the author offers analyses of key economists who have changed their views over time, an examination of major domestic and international issues, and an explanation of how economists can predict which politicians will be successful.

Listener Opinions

    " The book was okay but the author didn't always support his views with as much evidence as I would like. The Notes section at the end was great though, because it included a bibliography of all the books and articles he'd referenced throughout. I've added several of those to my reading list. "

    " I found the first few chapters of this book to be informative. Once you reached the case studies it became apparent that the author leans quite far to the right and his writing style was pompous. Personally, I did not much care for the book. "

    " Very interesting - a little too technical at times for me. "
