Publisher's Summary

Participating in the economy is a part of everyday life, yet much of what is commonly accepted as fact is wrong. Keynesian schoolteachers and the liberal media have filled the world with politically correct errors that myth-busting professor Robert Murphy sets straight. Murphy explains hot topics like outsourcing (why it's good for Americans) and zoning restrictions (why they're not). Just like the other books in the P.I.G. series, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Capitalism pulls no punches. Murphy defends the free market on such issues as safety regulations, racial discrimination, and child-labor laws, in a breezy manner that is anything but textbook-like. The Politically Incorrect Guide to Capitalism sets the record straight on everything you thought you knew about economics.

Entertaining and Educational

Without question an anti-"big government", anti-liberal, and pro-capitalist book. The author has no qualms voicing his distain for government controls on economics or shortsighted and politically motivated interference with the free market. Having noted this less than respectful attitude towards Democrats, the book is filled with sound economic education. The author quotes both Adam Smith and Ayn Rand on numerous occasions (which gives a good indication of his stance) and offers a number of excellent scholarly works as reference in the "books you aren't supposed to read" vignettes. Not as well written, or as practically informative as Robert Kiyosaki's "Rich Dad" collection, but unabridged, and 'sound as a pound' in it's economic basis. Highly recommend as basic info, a starting point in economics, and as ammo for political conservatives.

Introduction to the Austrian School of Econ

This book is very similar to Henry Hazlitt's Economics in One Lesson. It is an introduction to free market economics and the Austrian School of Economics. It is a great book to learn the basics from.
