Publisher's Summary

Remember when socialism was a dirty word? Now students at America's elite universities are parroting socialist talking points and "sure thing" Hillary Clinton is struggling to win the Democratic nomination against a 74-year-old avowed socialist who promises to make the nation more like Europe. What's happened? Do Americans need a reminder about the dangers of socialist ideology and practices?
Thomas DiLorenzo, economics professor and senior fellow at the Ludwig von Mises Institute, deconstructs the retrograde ideology that has suddenly become disturbingly hip in The Problem with Socialism.

Lots of good points very little fluff. Paints a very clear picture.

I really like how succinct this audio is. It is very timely and relevant.
DiLorenzo hits the right topics, explains them quickly and moves on. I also liked his reference points; Lappin, Bastiat, Mises, Stalin. He uses History in conjunction with these other authors as authority to further his already well made points.
I liked everything about this book, DiLorenzo provides good info and methodically shows "The Problem with Socialism" and will alert those that may be asleep to the Socialist policies that have already been enacted and in place in the US for many years.
He makes clear what the natural conclusion of where these socialist policies have taken other countries in the last 150 years and where the Socialist policies in the US will also eventually lead.
Book provides the feeling and facts and the moral positioning needed to have intelligent conversation for those who may be trying to find their way to Liberty.
I have 130 non fiction titles. I wrote reviews for only 5 or 6 others. I'll be listening again soon!
