This is a really interesting perspective on how we got into this financial crisis with very clear insights into a variety of areas including the role of government on business, the future of capitalism, and how we are going to get out of this current mess. Forbes looks at whether capitalism drove this recent economic collapse and comes suggests that there were very clear things that went wrong/people to blame, but at its core, capitalisim is still moral and the only way to fix this mess.

This book clearly lays out a plan for pulling ourselves out of the economic hole we have dug ourselves into.

This book helped me to understand "conservative" in today's business environment, and "capitalism". I came away more of a supporter of capitalism than ever. Too bad Washington isn't understanding this.

This book perfectly explains why capitalism is the greatest economic system and what we must do as a nation to create a prosperous future. It explains how we got into this current financial crisis and what is the best way to get out of it and prevent future recessions. It's all about disproving the lies of capitalism and it does it's job perfectly.

Mr. Forbes's depiction of "capitalism" as a system that "will save us" is simpleminded, even anachronistic. Moreover, the only portion of the book for which he can probably fairly claim authorship is an absurd collection of assertions of "Real World Lessons" at the end of each chapter, see, e.g.: "Occupational licensing, while necessary in some professions, raises prices and constricts employment." See also, "Outsourcing may destroy some jobs, but it ultimately results in more 'creation' than 'destruction' for the economy and Americans." Don't waste your money or your time.
