Publisher's Summary

Remember when socialism was a dirty word? Now students at America's elite universities are parroting socialist talking points and "sure thing" Hillary Clinton is struggling to win the Democratic nomination against a 74-year-old avowed socialist who promises to make the nation more like Europe. What's happened? Do Americans need a reminder about the dangers of socialist ideology and practices?
Thomas DiLorenzo, economics professor and senior fellow at the Ludwig von Mises Institute, deconstructs the retrograde ideology that has suddenly become disturbingly hip in The Problem with Socialism.

Every young person needs a copy of this book...

For what this book may lack in length, it makes up for in sheer content. I've never come across such a wonderfully concise and easily followed critique on the short comings of socialism, combining theory with case study and opportunities for further reading. In a time where most younger people have a strange fascination and fondness for socialism, this book seems the ideal remedy. Buy it twice and pass it on.

A good explanation

Explains the failures of socialism with multitudes of examples with accurate statistics and cites relevant economists and philosophers.

A really good read (or listen) - it's a shame the people who think they want socialism probably won't try it.
