I could have listened to more of this, I never thought economics could be so interesting.
Absolutely loved it.
I would recommend everyone to read this book, gives you a better understanding of how things are not what they seem, would help pick your electoral parties as well.
The man that read this, his voice was perfect to listen to.I could probably listen to his voice from any audio book.
Gave this rating as I could not fault anything about this book.

Excellent Book on Basic Economics
Not really a "story" but it does tell the history and continuing effect of economics on our lives.
Thomas Sowell presents Economics in a very easy to understand and well illustrated way. This is the 5th edition so is up to date with current examples. There is a lot of information and a plethora of quotable quotes, so probably warrants additional listens to absorb it all.
Tom Weiner is perfect for this type of a book as he reads as one would expect an "expert" in this field might read.
A great book that I will definitely listen to again.

This is one of the best audio books I've purchased so far. I believe it should be required reading and that the principles should be taught early in the educational system. There is a lot of information that explains a lot of economic problems - poverty and unemployment, for example - that could be eliminated through policy adjustments or eliminations. The concepts are so clearly conveyed, in fact, that it's difficult to fathom how or why any great society would implement contradictory regulations.
The narrator spoke at a pace and pitch that facilitated ease of reception of the material (this is subjective, I suppose).
