    Must read for anyone interested in Economics

    Truly one of the best economics books to date. The principles Sorman outlines are nothing new, but the manner and clarity with which he does so certainly is. It demonstrates the necessity of the free market in these troubled economic times. Genius is when the complicated is made simple and clear. Sorman does exactly that.
