Synopsis: * Do taxes help more than they hurt?
* What effect does redistributing wealth have on our economy---and those who participate in its redistribution?
* What is the role of government?
* How does an economy work?

James Gwartney, Richard L. Stroup, and Dwight R. Lee are three of the most prominent economists today, and in Common Sense Economics they show us why economic understanding is an essential ingredient for life in today's society, a key element that empowers those who possess it to better take charge of their own lives and their own responsibilities to their society. In clear, powerful language free of any hint of jargon or obscurity, they illuminate the basic principles of supply and demand, private ownership, trade, and more. In a world where free trade, taxes, and government spending are issues everyone needs to understand, Common Sense Economics is a lucid, simple explanation of how and why our economy and our world work the way they do, and how and why individuals and nations prosper.

About the Author: James Gwartney served as chief economist for the Joint Economic Committee of Congress. A professor of economics at Florida State University, he holds the Gus A. Stavros Eminent Scholar Chair and directs the Stavros Center for Economic Education.

Richard L. Stroup is the author of Eco-Nomics, professor of economics at Montana State University, and senior fellow at the Property and Environment Research Center. He has also served as chief economist at the Interior Department.

Dwight R. Lee is coauthor of Getting Rich in America. He holds the Ramsey Chair of Private Enterprise at the University of Georgia and is a past president of the Southern Economic Association.
