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.

New 2011 expanded edition adds chapter and lots more! 18 janvier 2011

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.

A book washington don't want you to read 18 avril 2012

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.

This is the fun book to read. Even most teens will love to read it! The book shows many absurdities of laws that interfere with the free market and the freedom of individuals. This book will make you think and laugh at the same time.
