Economics On Trial: Lies, Myths, And Realities Reviews

    OK, twenty years before this book was written I took three quarters of economics and argued with the logic of the experts in my textbooks because they did not make sense to me. I gave up and gave the expected answers for the course. I am glad Skousen points out what he perceives to be deficiencies in the top 10 textbooks used by universities and colleges. Eighteen years after the book was published (1991), I don't believe enough people heard his message that "Deficit spending and an excessive national debt are a drag on society, not a benefit." I currently rank this as three stars because some topics,such as "Japan and the Four Tigers", are outdated.

    Economics On Trial by Mark Skousen does and excellent job of taking on common arguments used by mainstream media, Keynesian economists and your local skull full of mush with a single undergrad economics course, and logically breaks down each argument. The common sense approach to economics by Mark Skousen makes Economics On Trial an excellent read even if you have never taken an economics class. Mark goes through each argument by explaining how it is constructed and used and then why it is weak or incorrect. But he doesn't leave you wandering in the economic wilderness. He follows up by presenting a counter position to keep your mind thinking forward about logical economic logic and actions. One of the most remarkable things about this book is realizing when it was written and then reflecting on everything our economy has experienced in the last 20 years since the book was first published.
