Summary
This book is designed for people who want to understand economic issues without getting bogged down in economic jargon, graphs, or political rhetoric. The author exposes some of the most popular fallacies about economic issues, including many that are widely disseminated in the media and by politicians: fallacies about urban problems, income differences, male-female economic differences, academia, race, and Third World countries. While all of these fallacies have a certain plausibility that gives them their staying power, this makes it even more important to carefully examine their flaws. The author holds these beliefs under the microscope and draws conclusions that are sure to inspire rigorous debate
