Descriptions du produit

New Expanded 2011 Edition!The Adventures of Jonathan Gullible tells the story of a boy who becomes shipwrecked on an unfamiliar island after being swept out to sea in a storm. Having previously lived in a relatively free society, in this new strange land he experiences culture shock as he learns learns of bewildering laws and traditions of the islands inhabitants. The story highlights the absurdities of the laws, the controls imposed on people's lives, and the economic drawbacks of these laws.The laws highlighted are recognizable as common to many countries throughout the world. As the story unfolds, the part individuals in society play in political decision-making and personal responsibility is introduced for discussion. The book is a delight to read! As Jonathan meanders on his way around the Isle of Corrumpo, he meets the Food Police, Uncle Samta, the True Believers, the Grand Inquirer and the Democracy Gang along the way - along with many more wacky inhabitants whose strange ideas and even stranger ways Jonathan is challenged to understand and straighten out.Translated into over 40 languages and 44 published editions, The Adventures of Jonathan Gullible has won numerous awards and has been endorsed by Steve Forbes, Walter Williams, John Stossel, Mark Skousen, and Austrian-School economists and educators throughout the world. The Adventures of Jonathan Gullible has become the classic free-market mix of Frederic Bastiat, Adam Smith, von Mises, and Pat Paulsen! "This book makes you laugh, but it leaves you meditating...(on) the principles of a free economy and a free society," Valentina Buxar, Fundatia Liberala, Romania."It certainly presents basic economic principles in a very simple and intelligent form. It is an imaginative and very useful (book)!," Milton Friedman, Nobel Laureate, Economics.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 New 2011 expanded edition adds chapter and lots more! 18 janvier 2011
Par West Coast Pundit - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This brand new 2011 edition of The Adventures of Jonathan Gullible is fantastic.

A few years ago I read a previous edition of The Adventures of Jonathan Gullible and have liked the book for its really good examples of using common sense (libertarian/Austrian economic principles?)to show the folly of allowing government to dominate the lives of individuals. I've even given copies to several friends to read. The book is a classic. I love Uncle Samba, and the Food Police, and the Democracy Gang, and every time I reread the Tall Tax, I crack up. It's a funny book.

Several days ago I saw this new edition on Amazon, and immediately ordered it. Professor Schoolland has been busy updating and revising the book with an additional chapter, and a new Index of Ideas. Lots updated: Tale of the Book, Recommended Reading List, Organizations & Websites, etc. continue on the story, and the quest for personal liberty in this crazy age of Big Brother and the Nanny State.

Well worth buying, especially for anyone in high school or college who wants to think free.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Macro Economics Must Read 16 mars 2008
Par W. Fujimoto - Publié sur Amazon.com
In 39 very short chapters, Ken Schoolland explains many of the topics covered in macro economic textbooks, but in an interesting way inspired by The Little Prince and Gulliver's Travels. This book makes economics fun. The commentary edition gives parents or teachers ideas for discussion other references. Amazon doesn't seem to keep the book in stock. It has been translated into 41 languages, won numerous awards and was praised by the late Milton Friedman. [...] find out about the upcoming hardcover English edition with color illustrations. Ken Schoolland is an award winning economics professor at Hawaii Pacific University. He has written an economics book unlike any other!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A book washington don't want you to read 18 avril 2012
Par Ryoma Sakamoto - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book put in perspective and in a simple to understand manner the follies of government and the foolishness of believing in it.

The way I saw it, Jonathan home is the USA today and he got shipwrecked on an island that WILL be the USA if it keeps on going in its present course.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Succinct and Entertaining Catalactic Tales!!! 28 février 2014
Par Jackston Mann - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Amazing, clear and concise illustration of Austrian Economics(Catallaxy) through the medium of kid-age fables. These principles and scruples I'm sure will be self-evident in their timelessness. Applicable at all levels and all ages, young, old, novice and familiar.
