The Politically Incorrect Guide to Capitalism

The Politically Incorrect Guides

Description

Participating in the economy is a part of everyday life; yet much of what is commonly accepted as economic fact is wrong. Keynesian schoolteachers and the liberal media have filled the world with politically correct errors that myth-busting professor Robert Murphy sets straight. Murphy explains hot topics like outsourcing (why it’s good for Americans) and zoning restrictions (why they’re not).

Just like the other books in the PIG series, The Politically Incorrect Guideto Capitalism pulls no punches. Murphy defends the free market on such sensitive issues as safety regulations, racial discrimination, and child-labor laws, all in a breezy manner that is anything but textbook. From rent control to golden parachutes to where money came from in the first place, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Capitalism sets the record straight on everything you thought you knew about economics.

Murphy starts with a basic explanation of what capitalism really is, and then dives fearlessly into hot topics like

–Why central planning has never worked and never will

–How prices operate in a free market—and why socialist schemes like rent control always backfire

–How labor unions actually hurt workers more than they help them

–Why increasing the minimum wage is always a bad idea

–Why the free market is the best guard against racism

–How capitalism will save the environment—and why Communist countries were the most polluted on earth

–Raising taxes: why it is never “responsible”

–Why no genuine advocate for the downtrodden could endorse the dehumanizing Welfare State

–The single biggest myth underlying the public’s support for government regulation of business

–Antitrust suits: usually filed by firms that lose in free competition

–How tariffs and other restrictions “protect” privileged workers but make other Americans poorer

–The IMF and World Bank: why they don’t help poor countries

The Politically Incorrect Guide to Capitalism is a solid and entertaining guide to free market economics. With his twelve-step plan for understanding the free market, Murphy shows why conservatives should resist attempts to socialize America and fight spiritedly for the free market.
