The Politically Incorrect Guide to Capitalism
by Robert Murphy
With The Politically Incorrect Guide to Capitalism, economist Robert Murphy has written an easy to read defense of the free market and a great introduction to economic concepts. Dominating Murphy’s analysis is the idea that the unregulated market not only makes an economy more prosperous, it more ably handles a wide range of social issues. Murphy packs a lot of information and theory into this short, entertaining volume.
Praise for The Politically Incorrect Guide to Capitalism
“Bob Murphy is one of those rare thinkers who possesses both sound economics and an ability to write. He displays these traits well in his guide to free market capitalism. Far from being an abstract, dismal science that serves only to torture undergrads, economics is deadly serious and vital to the future of this country. As he demonstrates in his book, Bob knows the theory, but also how to apply it in the real world.” – Arthur Laffer, Laffer Associates
“Dr. Murphy has the gift of making clear and simple what appears to be confusing. While many economists attempt to complicate issues in order to ‘prove by intimidation,’ Dr. Murphy makes the argument with such clarity that the average reader will wonder why she didn’t figure this out in the first place.” – Gary Wolfram, professor of economics, Hillsdale College
