The Nobel Prize–winning economist explains how value is created, and how that affects everything from your paycheck to global markets. In this “lively, enlightening introduction to monetary history” (Kirkus Reviews), one of the leading figures of the Chicago school of economics that rejected the theories of John Maynard Keynes offers a journey through history to illustrate the importance of understanding monetary economics, and how monetary theory can ignite or deepen inflation. With anecdotes revealing the far-reaching consequences of seemingly minor events—for example, how two obscure Scottish chemists destroyed the presidential prospects of William Jennings Bryan, and how FDR’s domestic politics helped communism triumph in China—as well as plain-English explanations of what the monetary system in the United States means for your personal finances and for everyone from the small business owner on Main Street to the banker on Wall Street, Money Mischief is an enlightening read from the author of Capitalism and Freedom and Free to Choose, who was called “the most influential economist of the second half of the twentieth century” by the Economist.

Most commonly accepted economic "facts" are wrong Here's the unvarnished, politically incorrect truth. The liberal media and propagandists masquerading as educators have filled the world--and deformed public policy--with politically correct errors about capitalism and economics in general. In The Politically Incorrect Guide(tm) to Capitalism, myth-busting professor Robert P. Murphy, a scholar and frequent speaker at the Ludwig von Mises Institute, cuts through all their nonsense, shattering liberal myths and fashionable socialist cliches to set the record straight. Murphy starts with a basic explanation of what capitalism really is, and then dives fearlessly into hot topics like: * Outsourcing (why it's good for Americans) and zoning restrictions (why they're not) * Why central planning has never worked and never will * How prices operate in a free market (and why socialist schemes like rent control always backfire) * How labor unions actually hurt workers more than they help them * Why increasing the minimum wage is always a bad idea * Why the free market is the best guard against racism * How capitalism will save the environment--and why Communist countries were the most polluted on earth * Raising taxes: why it is never "responsible" * Why no genuine advocate for the downtrodden could endorse the dehumanizing Welfare State * The single biggest myth underlying the public's support for government regulation of business * Antitrust suits: usually filed by firms that lose in free competition * How tariffs and other restrictions "protect" privileged workers but make other Americans poorer * The IMF and World Bank: why they don't help poor countries * Plus: Are you a capitalist pig? Take the quiz and find out! Breezy, witty, but always clear, precise, and elegantly reasoned, The Politically Incorrect Guide(tm) to Capitalism is a solid and entertaining guide to free market economics. With his twelve-step plan for understanding the free market, Murphy shows why conservatives should resist attempts to socialize America and fight spiritedly for the free market.

This book is a collection of controversial issues our nation faces today. The book offers a better understanding on alternatives to laws and policies that have poor results from well intentioned solutions. In addition, it gives the reader a different point of view. This book also has stories from my personal life, which has lead to my beliefs and eventually led me to my convictions. Some of these chapters continue the philosophy of Adam Smith and Milton Freidman in regards to power of the free market. This book addresses problems in a more pragmatic manner on solutions on the issues our nation faces today. I believe once people read this book, they'll begin their own journey to examine more aspects of their lives and how government policies, and laws impact their success, positively or negatively.

We tend to think of dominos as standing the tiles on end and then tipping the first one over, toppling into the second, which falls into the third until finally all the dominoes have fallen. In 2008 the first of many financial dominos began falling. Many were worried and looked to Washington for leadership. Instead, we saw only politics-as-usual. But as 2009 and 2010 unfolded, it became too benign to suggest our stricken economy was simply toppled dominos. It was more accurate to describe our condition as an economic “train wreck.” The financial chaos as a result of the crisis was heightened by an extraordinary government intervention to triage the shattered economy. Many feared, with justification, that we may be teetering on the brink of this generation's Great Depression. The near-death experience the U.S. economy has suffered forced Americans to turn inward and question our leaders. Our worries have multiplied. Our free market system and ultimately the “American Dream” itself now seem more vulnerable than ever. More importantly, we doubt ourselves and our leaders and long for our life-before. This is a book that chronicles the unfolding disaster of our nation's financial “train wreck.” For two crucial years, Kevin Clark had broadcast financial analysis that became a play-by-play of the economic collapse. Now, with hindsight, he revisits recent history and brings what he calls a “Main Street” perspective of this most critical moment in the modern life of America.

As a high school history teacher for the past 25 years, I have collected and read hundreds of books pertaining to my subjects taught. On the completion of each book, I would carefully take notes on the most interesting events, quotes, or interpretations that I felt would enhance instruction for my students. After filling numerous notepads of information on over 800 books, I contemplated a project of sharing my most interesting findings. The result of this twenty plus year project is this book. This book is divided into 16 chapters based on the various topics presented. Some chapters contain a small amount of entries such as Nicknames, Espionage, or Labor while chapters on the Presidents or quotes will fill over thirty pages. The first chapter puts emphasis on the role my home state of Alabama has played on the national scene. One chapter is entitled Miscellaneous – Odds and Ends due to the subject matter not fitting into any other classification.

The Great Depression of 1929 was similar to the Great Recession of 2008, but not identical, either in its cause or its cure. This book explores the reasons why that is and suggests that the US economy has changed radically in the last half-century—to the point that one must reanalyze the theories of the four great economists, with a view to synthesizing and applying their separate bits of wisdom into a compatible, modern diagnosis of recessions and prescription for curing and avoiding them. Buttressed on the brilliant reinterpretation of Keynes by Princeton’s Allan Meltzer, and on the writings of modern commentators and academics, the author weaves together a readable explanation of what nowadays passes for the “liberal” view and the “conservative” view. Numerous examples are given of specific industries and enterprises, of joint public-private projects, and of the interdependence between government and the free market. Vignettes and quotes are also offered of the great deeds, as well as the dismal failures of policies implemented by Teddy and Franklin Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan, Bush father and son, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama. In the end, a tantalizing fusion is achieved of the best elements of Keynesianism, monetarism, and free-market economics. And all the time, the level of discussion is reachable by all and interesting to all who have even a minimal interest in the history and politics of economic theory.

Interest in economics is at an all-time high. Among the challenges facing the nation is an economy with rapidly rising unemployment, failures of major businesses and industries, and continued dependence on oil with its wildly fluctuating price. Americans are debating the proper role of the government in company bailouts, the effectiveness of tax cuts versus increased government spending to stimulate the economy, and potential effects of deflation. Economists have dealt with such questions for generations, but they have taken on new meaning and significance. Tackling these questions and encompassing analysis of traditional economic theory and topics as well as those that economists have only more recently addressed, 21st Century Economics: A Reference Handbook is intended to meet the needs of several types of readers. Undergraduate students preparing for exams will find summaries of theory and models in key areas of micro and macroeconomics. Readers interested in learning about economic analysis of an issue as well students embarking on research projects will find introductions to relevant theory and empirical evidence. And economists seeking to learn about extensions of analysis into new areas or about new approaches will benefit from chapters that introduce cutting-edge topics. To make the book accessible to undergraduate students, models have been presented only in graphical format (minimal calculus) and empirical evidence has been summarized in ways that do not require much background in statistics or econometrics. It is thereby hoped that chapters will provide both crucial information and inspiration in a non-threatening, highly readable format.

Shortly after, two men stood at the entrance of the apartment, the bullet riddled bodies told a story of horror. Both men were dressed impeccably. One wore a blue pinstripe suit, white shirt, red satin tie, navy blue alligator shoes and a Borsalino that was carefully broken down just right, shadowing his handsome face. His fingers were laced in diamonds and he carried a cane with the head of a lion with jeweled eyes. In front of him came in a slender gentlemen, dress in a black suit and dark shades he was called Decipher. He was the one that made sure the room was clear standing with his back against the opened door gun in hand. The man with the cane walked into the room stepping over dead bodies. He quickly went into the bedroom he removed the recliner that protected the hidden floor compartment. He opened the compartment door and removed the infant she was fine. She smiled up at him and through all that chaos she never made a sound. He pulled her close to his chest and kissed her on the forehead. Before leaving he removed several envelopes from the compartment and money that was stacked in hundred dollar increments. He walked over to Ebony's body and removed the sterling silver heart locket from her neck. He and the gentlemen left. Sirens echoed from a short distance, the boys in blue were coming it was only two hours later.
