  • IT'S THE ECONOMY, STUPID a Rhodes Scholar Education in One Hour on June 11, 2012
    (no rating)
    IT'S THE ECONOMY, STUPID a Rhodes Scholar Education in One Hour… by Andre Jute The Description - "IT’S THE ECONOMY, STUPID explains in under an hour what truly matters in this (or any other) Presidential election. You’ll be able to identify the culprits responsible for economic theory and policy — and you’ll know why they’ve created this mess. In other words, you’ll be as smart as Bill Clinton, the Rhodes Scholar for whom the catch phrase “It’s the economy, stupid” was coined." The description caught my attention, but the book failed to live up to it. Economic theories and their founders are presented in encyclopedic fashion, and the author's clear message is that these theories are divorced from reality - except for the often disastrous results. A good book for someone curious about economic theory, as it provides enough nuggets of information to prompt further reading. ( )

    An interesting read, especially good for a first in series. There are lots of questions to be answered and more to learn about the main character. Well written and enjoyable.
