The great achievement of Sowell's
book is its simplicity. His writing is easy and lucid, an admirable
trait considering the topic at hand. . . His target
audience is the average citizen who has little or no economics background,
but would like the tools to think critically about economic issues.
Every library covering economics or public administration
will require a copy.
In Applied Economics, the companion volume to
his earlier work, Basic Economics, Thomas Sowell uses rudimentary economic
theory to unmask the cant that surrounds too many policy debates.
