Summary

"Are free market economies really based on fleecing the consumer? Is the U.S. economy truly just a giant free-for-all that encourages duplicity in our everyday transactions? Is everyone from corporate CEOs to your local car salesman really looking to make a buck at your expense?" "In Freedomnomics: Why the Free Market Works and Other Half-Baked Theories Don't, economist John R. Lott, Jr., answers these and other common economic questions, confronting the profound distrust of the market that the bestselling book Freakonomics has helped to popularize. Using clear examples, Lott shows how free markets liberate the best, most creative, and most generous aspects of our society - while efforts to constrain economic liberty, no matter how well-intentioned, invariably lead to increased poverty and injustice."--BOOK JACKET.
