Abstract

The latest book by prolific author Thomas Sowell, the Rose and Milton Friedman Senior Fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, has two aims: to provide a list of widely held but demonstrably false economic beliefs and then to demonstrate their invalidity using hard facts. These economic beliefs come in six areas: the economics of cities, differences between men and women, differences among races, higher education, income inequality, and developing economies. He deals with each topic in a separate chapter.
