Publisher's Summary

In this timely new P. I. Guide, Murphy reveals the stark truth: free market failure didn't cause the Great Depression, and the New Deal didn't cure it. Shattering myths and politically correct lies, he tells why World War II didn't help the economy or get us out of the Great Depression; why it took FDR to make the Depression "Great"; and why Herbert Hoover was more like Obama and less like Bush than the liberal media would have you believe. Free-market believers and capitalists everywhere should listen to this.

Scary

Where does The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Great Depression and the New Deal rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

I think it is scary that all of that brilliant analysis by the greatest minds in history and economics still cannot even come to a basic decision as to what went wrong in the great Depression and what solutions if any worked. How could we possibly know today when we are right in the middle of it. Did the Tarp and the stimulus work or would it have all panned out being left alone?

What does Tom Weiner bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

I would never have just sat down and read such a heavy book but in audio form it was easier to get into and understand the flow. In just one year with Audible.com I have listened to 10 times more books than I read in previous years.

If you could give The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Great Depression and the New Deal a new subtitle, what would it be?

Myths surrounding the New Deal and what really happened to the economy in the 30's.

Good summary of real causes of "Great Depression"

I listened FDR's Folly which along with several other works by Thomas Sowell, Milton Friedman, Friedrich Hayek and others is often quoted in this book. This book is a good recap of those interspersed with commentary and additional facts supplied by the author. The narration is excellent. The pacing is good and it's easy to follow each chapter. In K-12, most peoples sole exposure to the subject, the textbooks are full of misinformation about the causes and resolution of the extended downturn. This book is a great starting point for finding out what really took place.
