@Talabardio,

It's noticeable that your review didn't address one of the author's ideas. Instead, you engaged in name-calling banality echoing 1930s and 1960s counter culture that predicted the triumph of Communism instead of the reality of the Berlin Wall's collapse that the Left has yet to acknowledge.

"...allowed to be shown to children via the public library system..."
If it were up to you, the government would censor this book in the interest of protecting children from a poison pill, no doubt. At least you're consistent and offering yet another example of your model's irreconcilability with the Constitution's limits on government power. Precisely why totalitarians such as you despise the Constitution and any sort of freedom. It's doubtful that you know what extreme Right means. The extreme Right as you call it has never garnered more than 10% of the popular vote in any WASP country such as the USA. Your specious Nazi reference misses that reality that the nSdap was a Socialists party, whose coercive economic polices had much more in common with your views than this author arguing against government interference with free citizens' decisions.

Why such a wafer-deep, extreme right wing poison pill such as this is allowed to be shown to children via the public library system is beyond me. If there is an ongoing "assault on Capitalism" today, it is surely an abysmal failure as the wealthy 'capitalist class' is enjoying fantastic financial success in this new Gilded Age - while the rest of our society stagnates in debt and unemployment. Rather than acknowledging real issues facing average people today, such as the never ending corporate erosion of our society, this book presents patently absurd, ostrich-head-in-the-sand answers to the complex questions facing America and the world today.

This is a great presentation of basic economics at a level a 10 year old could understand! It is entertaininly written, w/o boring charts and graphs, yet conveys a clear and concise understanding of many of the economic issues facing the U.S.
