July’s Book: Popular Economics

Greece's midnight deadline passed last night for repaying $1.8 billion to the IMF, leaving many to start discussing a Greek Exit from the EU. At over $15, it’s a little pricey, but overall worth it, even in the Kindle version. With the country of Greece now accepting the role of bankruptcy pioneer, July looks like a great month to brush up on economics.

Popular Economics: What the Rolling Stones, Downton Abbey, and LeBron James Can Teach You about Economics by John Tamny lays out some basic economic truths that often get overlooked by the IMF.

From establishing that the, “Only wealth that politicians and bureaucrats have to invest was taken from someone else,” to tackling corporate taxes as a penalty on production, Tamny’s latest book is a 256 page breath of fresh air and reads like a warm embrace of common sense.

Seriously---that’s not hype.Read it while you catch some sun in Zakynthos.

Before you start to protest that a book on economics won’t cut it as your summer beach read, we strongly suggest you give Popular Economics a chance. Well-researched and brimming with historical and pop culture anecdotes, even the Forward by Steve Forbes is worth the read.

Pick up your copy here or from our side margins and let us know what you think down in the comments.

Really, PDers, you won’t be disappointed.

    Not jingoistic, but provides an honest look at the new American "free market."

    I enjoyed "Trainwreck" where LeBrone was shown to be cheap.
