Naked Economics: Undressing the Dismal Science (2002)

review 1: If only economics was taught with this much humor and genuine enthusiasm...I may have decided to major in business. This is a tremendously well-written book, whether you agree with all of Wheelan's conclusions or not. The segment on sweat shops is perhaps the most debatable, but ...

review 1: For years I have stated my political point of view as "extreme moderate." Naturally the Centrist Manifesto appealed. It did not disappoint. Charles Wheelan lays out a plan and basic platform for a third U.S. party. The Centrist Party would take the best ideas from each party, put...
