Check out this pre-release review of Genetski's latest book:
"Robert Genetski proves once again that sound economic theory and reliable data can be joined to answer the biggest questions facing humanity. In Rich Nation / Poor Nation, he eloquently explains classical liberal principles and tests them using real-world data on economic growth in countries around the world. The free-market model of low taxes, deregulation, and the rule of law is shown to work again and again over time and in virtually all countries of the world. Don’t let the brevity of Genetski’s book fool you: he swiftly demolishes the arguments put forth by more prolix authors such as Thomas Piketty using plain English and easy-to-understand graphs. This book is an instant classic and belongs in every library and on the desk of everyone with an interest in human prosperity."
