Basic Economics – Thomas Sowell Audible Audio Edition

Basic Economics is a citizen’s guide to economics-for those who want to understand how the economy works but have no interest in jargon or equations. Sowell reveals the general principles behind any kind of economy-capitalist, socialist, feudal, and so on. In readable language, he shows how to critique economic policies in terms of the incentives they create, rather than the goals they proclaim. With clear explanations of the entire field, from rent control and the rise and fall of businesses to the international balance of payments, this is the first book for anyone who wishes to understand how the economy functions.

  1. “Knowledge is one of the most scarce all of all resources…” -Thomas Sowell

    I knew zip about economics before stumbling upon Sowell. Simply priceless ??

  2. Whole western "economics" is an attempt to hide Marxs economic theory.
    It hides capitalists need for constant market expansion and the crushing demand drop.
    I m not saying you should ignore any, I m saying after you ve done this one go read Marx and you will see the difference.

  4. The only thing that would’ve made this amazing video slightly better:
