This audiobook was originally inspired by Harry Truman, who said, "Give me a one-handed economist! All my economists say on the one hand...on the other." It is my contention that ideology can operate only to limit choice. By mitigating choices, growth-stimulating accords are sometimes overlooked or simply ignored. As an empiricist, I advocate that no ideology is right or wrong but that conditions and data are all that should drive our policy-making decisions. Every policy has a place where it will or will not work, a set of circumstances that make it function or malfunction, and conditions that promote or deny the benefits associated with that policy. My view on economic policymaking and world poverty is unique to the literature, since it is precisely opposite to Harry Truman's desire. The world is complex; Harry Truman needed a Three Handed Economist; one hand was never enough.
Three Handed Economist addresses many issues relating to the popular grievances people have, discuss, and ultimately hold as banner and reason to entrench their ideology. Chapters one through three are about informing and providing historical reasoning for the predicament the United States finds itself in, hopefully with the effect of reaching some of the entrenched ideologues.
