Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Clarence B. Carson has made economics readable for the layman. In his latest book, Basic Economics, Carson does what he does best; he draws on his extensive knowledge of history and free market economic theory to lead his readers carefully through the intricacies and fallacies of economic thought.” New American
“As narrator, Hurt has a pleasant vocal quality…He succeeds by making the most of his instrument and treating the book almost as if it were a musical score written within that range.” Talking Book Review
