    Description

    This book is geared to the average citizen with little or no economics background who would like the tools to think critically about economic issues. Many of today's economic issues are obscured by their inherent complexity and the often confusing and conflicting views coming from political talking heads. Sowell, a leading conservative economist and senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, seeks to alleviate this confusion. He begins by elucidating the differences between politicians, who are often compelled by political considerations to act for the short term, and economists, who are more concerned with long-term ramifications. Sowell then focuses on the application of economics to major contemporary real-world problems - housing, medical care, discrimination, and the economic development of nations.

    great

    You should expect this to be academic, but it reads quick and is presented in an easily understood pace of the curriculum taught within.

    A Great Reality Check on Intentions and Outcomes

    Sowell opens your mind, teaching you to think beyond the narrative. A truly great read.

    Bill Wallace's narration is better

    The version with the red cover is better split in subchapters and narrated in a more even manner.

    Clear and well argued

    In characteristic Thomas Sowell fashion, this book is clear, engaging, and well argued, with every assertion backed up by facts or examples.

    Confusing

    this is very confusing. I don't know exactly what this book was about. Sometimes it's just free market capitalism propaganda, sometimes history, sometimes general economics.
    I definitely don't recommend this to anyone.

    Great book.

    Should be required reading. Read Basic Economics by Thomas Sowell first. Both are Must Reads.

    another classic from Thomas Sowell

    Thomas Sowell expands on the concepts explained in his classic book Basic Economics with this tome that takes the principles from that prior work, and applies them to real-world situations. A must read/listen for anyone looking to gain a better grasp of economics

Hands down, this book achieves that goal. AE is the purview on managing Economic Resource Accumulation. A Must Read for all interested in better knowing Economics within its range of real-world applications.
