"Simple enough to teach kids—researched enough for the Wall Street Journal.
Godonomics is a must-see if you care about your country."

- Bob McEwen
  Former US Congressman

2 pages

"The natural effort of every individual to better his own condition... is so powerful a principle, that it is alone capable of carrying on the society to wealth and prosperity... surmounting a hundred obstructions with which the folly of human laws too often encumbers its operations.  The drive for greater government regulation is the drive toward increased poverty, unemployment, and the loss of liberty."
