ECONOPOWER How a New Generation of Economists Is Transforming the World

by | Read by Jeff Riggenbach

Business & Finance • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Former Columbia University professor Mark Skousen describes how successful economic principles are being applied to all sorts of unusual activities, such as auction practices worldwide and microlending in the Third World. He particularly cites the influence of the Austrian and Chicago schools of economics, which emphasize the shrinking of governmental and other bureaucracies and the minimizing of regulation. Narrator Jeff Riggenbach, an avowed Libertarian, brings an audible personal enthusiasm to his delivery. His slightly gravelly timbre is earnest, persuasive, and friendly, the very opposite of lofty lecturing. Since the material is extremely lucid, Riggenbach's approach is perfect. This is an instructive and well-done package. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
