Waste of Time
Thomas Friedman is back again with plenty of posturing and sham profundity as he hops onto the latest bandwagon in search of royalties.
Ignore him as he does not grasp economic reality but purely writes amusing pieces that, when intensely studied, fail miserably. He is a left-wing, pro-war, pro-globalization propaganda commentator who believes in big government.
Note how all of his solutions to make things better revolve around government central planning and does not care to involve creative free market enterpreneurs. Once you read enough of his drivel, you will see what I am saying.
Again, for your own sake, ignore him.

This work is a very good example of the main issues enveloping the United States in the 21st Century. Within these pages the reader is taken on a trip to a fantasy land. A land where puerile people believe a 'free market' actually exists.
Never mind that Alyssa Rosenbaum's (aka Ayn Rand) most famous acolyte, Alan Greenspan, has himself denounced the silly notions put forth in this screed. Not so easily dismissed, Thomas Friedman thinks he has found yet another way to make a few more bucks off this failed 'cult of the selfish and the self absorbed'.
Mr. Friedman - it is time to grow up and consider that we live in a community of people. Folks such as yourself who consider ONLY what is best for themselves have no place in our society. Please schedule your trip to "Atlantis" as soon as possible. Undoubtedly, you and your fellow self proclaimed 'Producers' will quickly turn your fantasy utopia into the 'Lord of the Flies'. Please go away now.

I never recieved my book or a refund!!! Will shop through Amazon from now on. They shipped it to my old address which was saved on my account... I contacted them immediately but to no avail. Private sellers didn't respond at all either!
