About this product
- DescriptionTakes us on tour of the fundamentals that shape markets and, through them, our daily economic lives. The author debunks the myth of the free market, showing how markets could not exist without governments to create the structures through which we assert ownership of property, real and intellectual, and conduct business of all kinds.
