  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Christopher Mitchell | 1/15/2014

    " Excellent discussion tackling good economics and discredited economics, good for those who think all economics is bullshit. Learn to separate the good from the bad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Lee | 11/23/2013

    " Argues for the bankruptcy of conservative economics and provides a liberal alternative that is less awed by the magical hand of the market. A good primer for our times. "

    " Very accessible. I liked it because it reinforced my already strong belief that we need to change the terms of economic debate away from the false free-market-vs-socialism dichotomy and toward data-based reality. "
