Madsen Pirie has a very incisive mind, and a very clear and pithy way of making his points. This book is no exception.

It categorically debunks a lot of widely held but unfounded beliefs. It would be funny if it wer not that Politicians base policy on those falsehoods, and most of us go along with them because we have been conned too.

Pity Tony Blair and the New Labour control freaks did not have a copy.

A very absorbing book full of mostly well-argued points in a concise, easily accessible format.

Thought provoking, giving foundations for further research if the reader feels so inspired yet providing enough ammo for match-winning banter with those achingly anti-market pro-state fashionistas decorating the grubbier bars and draping themselves, iMac clad, over a pavement coffee table.

This book intends to set up a series of arguments and then debunk them. However in some cases the arguments are straw man arguments in any case. In others the "debunking" simply makes the rather obvious point that these arguments do not propose a perfect solution: certainly any side of any political debate has some plus and minus points to it (otherwise it would not be debated), but simply pointing out the obvious minus points without considering whether these outweigh the positives is insufficient.

Well worth getting. A very thorough and well-written analysis of a wide range of issues.
