Reason Book was Chosen: I've listened to Russ Roberts' podcast, EconTalk, since 2013. He is also one of my website clients and I manage his russroberts.info website. It's been a pleasure to get to know him through the work on his website and I am looking forward to reading all of his books.

My Thoughts

Neat fable about economics channelling in David Ricardo in an It’s a Wonderful Life-like story of showing what could be without free trade. The book is set in 1960s America with David Ricardo, the 19th century economist, taking a fictional CEO into the future in 2005 to show him what happens if he lobbies the government for protection for his TV manufacturing facility. Author Russ Roberts uses stories, data, and anecdotes from actual companies to weave this story together. It sure beats a textbook.
