About this title:

Synopsis: [MP3CD Audiobook format in vinyl case]

{*FIRST EDITION}

[Read by Patrick Cullen]

This bold new history of economics tells the dramatic story of how the great economic thinkers built a rigorous social science without peer. Unlike other economics histories, Skousen's book provides a running plot with a singular heroic figure, Adam Smith, at the center of the discipline. Skousen unites the great thinkers by ranking them for or against Adam Smith and his system of natural liberty. He shows how Karl Marx, Thorstein Veblen, John Maynard Keynes, and even laissez-faire disciples Robert Malthus and David Ricardo detracted from Adam Smith s classical model of democratic capitalism, while Alfred Marshall, Irving Fisher, Ludwig von Mises, and Milton Friedman, among others, remodeled and improved upon Smithian economics. Highlights include humorous anecdotes and exciting new revelations about the lives of the great economists.

About the Author: MARK SKOUSEN is known as the maverick of economics for his contrarian and optimistic views as well as his sometimes outrageous statements and predictions. He is a college professor, prolific author, and world-renowned speaker.
