There’s nothing quite like seeing a child’s entrepreneurial endeavor be shut down by police officers or bureaucrats. But while that child’s hope for a quick buck may be dashed, their experience provides them - and you, through this audiobook - invaluable insights into government and law.
Are all laws legitimate? And does winning a popularity contest (also called an election) give somebody the authority to boss you around? What if the government outlaws something you need to do? Is it okay to break the law if doing what’s right has been classified as wrong?
Surprising, engaging, and filled with examples, Lessons from a Lemonade Stand offers essential answers for teenagers and adults looking to better understand the world we live in.
"The ideas of freedom can heal our world and improve our lives. Lessons from a Lemonade Stand provides an ample supply of this much-needed medicine. My prescription for the rising generation? Read this book!" - Lawrence W. Reed, president of the Foundation for Economic Education
"Take all the sweet platitudes you’ve ever heard about government - these wise public servants are innocently pursuing the common good! Government gets its just powers from our consent! - roll them into a ball, and throw them away. In their place, read Lessons from a Lemonade Stand, which contains more plain truth about the nature of government than any student ever heard in what we laughingly call our institutions of higher learning." - Tom Woods, New York Times best-selling author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History
