Economics in one Lesson - A Conservative View

by burkhardplache (WorldCat user published 2013-04-09) Very Good Permalink

This short critique of (m)any form(s) of economic policies is a must read for conservatives and liberals alike. The former will find their views reinforced, while the latter will benefit from a first hand outline of their opponents arguments.
