Praise for EconoPower

"Imagine, economists solving the world's problems! Skousen's breakthrough book bring us up to date on this fascinating development. Visionary economists are showing us creative ways to reduce world poverty, eliminate traffic jams, solve the health care crisis, save more and invest better, make business and labor more productive, improve education, cut crime, and even reduce tensions and establish peace in war-torn regions of the world. Read this book and discover a new brand of economics!"— JOHN MACKEY, CEO, Whole Foods Market

"Mark Skousen is an able, imaginative, and energetic economist."— MILTON FRIEDMAN, Nobel laureate in economics

"Economics is experiencing a golden age of discovery. Empirical economists are charting the economy and society with a wealth of detailed applied results that truly bear comparison with other epochs of discovery in other sciences."

— DIANE COYLE, author of The Soulful Science: What Economists Really Do and Why It Matters

"Mark Skousen is one of the best financial economists I know. His books on free-market economics and investing can't be beat. Like me, he's upbeat and optimistic about supply-side/Austrian economics, and has been instrumental in educating students, business people, government leaders, and fellow economists on sound economics and finance. Highly recommended."— LARRY KUDLOW, CNBC's Kudlow & Company

"Skousen does a wonderful job explaining how a new generation of economists is making a difference. Economics is no longer the dismal science, but an upbeat, universal science fulfilling ever-expanding needs—helping people save and invest better, bringing millions out of poverty, alleviating traffic congestion, making companies more profitable, and helping countries achieve their own economic miracles."— ARTHUR B. LAFFER, President, Laffer Associates
