Book Review @ Mises Institute: How an Economy Grows

How an Economy Grows And Why it Crashes by Peter d. Schiff and Andrew J. Schiff

Mises Daily: Tuesday, November 02, 2010 by George F. Smith

...People who find anything related to economics tedious will find the Schiff book an exciting discovery. It should have special appeal to Austrians at all levels of expertise, while the Keynesian wizards who laughed at Peter Schiff when he predicted the housing collapse will likely disdain it.

It might be the only economics book ever written that could be read aloud to one's family without putting them to sleep. The narrative never once lags or becomes academic. The authors manage to convey the critical concepts without straying from their "Connecticut straight-talk" approach.
