Sure, it has information about socialist economic ideas, along with free market ideas. I do not see how it is biased one way or the other.

Don't know if your post is being partisan, apologies if so, but the tax bill was introduced by a Republican into a Republican Congress with major input on the corporate tax rate by the Republican president. It was signed into law when the Republicans controlled both houses of Congress. Because this bill was truly fashioned by the president's wishes for several of the tax breaks for the wealthy and for the inordinately low corporate tax rate, it's not unreasonable to hold him accountable for this ill-timed stimulus (good economy, too much QE, so we're unprepared to take much action to counterbalance the next recession).

That's true. But for trickle down to work corps would have to increase wages, expand their business reach, or bring production back to the US. A lot of companies did do that. Which is good. But most large or public corps used the credits for stock buybacks. Which is good for the business, the executives, and shareholders. Inflates mostly the upper class and upper middle class. What was concerning to me was to see the gov then trying to cut social security, health benefits, and veterans care. Which felt to me a lot like a trickle up, backwards robin hood scam. But I'm sure there's more to it.

I have the economics book and read it a few years ago. Well worth it at this price and plan on having my kids read parts of it in a few years. I highly recommend it.

Yeah, don't tell anyone, but it's the 1% overall. Hear that ticking?

From an Amazon review. I'll pass...

"The book is titled "The Economics Book: Big Ideas Simply Explained." But it ought to be titled "The Case for Socialism," or "Let's Give Socialism a Chance." The book has a misleading title, because you are led to believe it's just a reference book on economics for the layman. But it's not. It's a book about the philosophy of economics."

I do like these books but Amazon does a bad job of controlling their file size. I understand they have lots of pictures but nearly 300 MB for a single book is a lot of space. I own a few in the Apple ecosystem and I believe I bought them there because the sizes were much smaller but the changes they made to the books app stupidly makes the file size impossible to find now.

I also have the PDF version of the Science Book and it clocks in at 36 MB, a much more reasonable size.

the revenue slash and spending increase came when it was still republican which was nothing but following orders. Checks and balances are an essential part of the government. Hopefully accountability will be a thing again soon. The tax cuts had no affect on anything but the uber rich and trickle down does not work.
