ECONOMISM Bad Economics and the Rise of Inequality

by | Read by Mark Bramhall

Business & Finance • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Here is a well-crafted explanation of why many popular free-market economic theories (supply-and-demand curves, survival-of-the-fittest policies) are both simplistic and irresponsible. Narrator Mark Bramhall's phrasing range and philosophical tone help take the contentiousness out of this discussion. His evenhanded delivery invites listeners to think about how abstract economic principles actually impact people in the real world. The author contends that supply-side economics and trickle-down theories have been promoted mainly by people in the public and private sectors who benefit from them. Written with equanimity and read with quiet, nonpartisan enthusiasm, this is an audio that will motivate many listeners to look more carefully at economic policies promoted at all levels of government.
