Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Economist Robert Murphy is an unrepentant "capitalist pig"--his words--and, true to his book's title, he delights in taking positions that make Marie Antoinette look sympathetic to the plight of the underprivileged. Phrases like "the liberal media" are a dead giveaway where Murphy's politics lie, and, considering the economic times we live in, his whole "let them eat cake" posture is at times grating. With lofty restraint reader Perry Richards's mellifluous voice suits Murphy's smugness. A disciple of economic guru Martin Friedman, Murphy has never met a millionaire he didn't like and is happy to tell you so, using Richards as his silver-tongued messenger.
