Reviews

"What a captivating idea Socialism Sucks embraces! A worldwide tour guide written in plain English by two high-end economists. An invasion of the world's most highly regulated hot spots where they can't even ef ciently produce or distribute something as simple and lovable as beer. A down-to-earth, almost fable-like lesson showing socialism's failures for all the world to see. And it even has some sidesplitting hilarity thrown in. I knew these guys were great; but I didn't know this side of them. Buy this book. Give it to your children and grandchildren, and to anyone who touts the nonsense-now fashionable in some American circles-that government power somehow produces more happiness than personal liberty." -- Judge Andrew Napolitano * Fox News *
"Professors Robert Lawson and Benjamin Powell do a yeomen's job in proving that socialism sucks, the apt title for their new book. They show why there's no stampede into countries like Venezuela and Cuba and other socialist darlings of the U.S. leftists. What's more, over a couple of drinks, Lawson and Powell prove that Sweden is not as socialistic as portrayed by our leftists." -- Walter E. Williams * professor of economics, George Mason University *
"What is `socialism'? And do countries that overindulge in it wake up with bad hangovers? You bet they do. Robert Lawson and Benjamin Powell give you the hair-of-the-dog cure. They provide a dose of political economy knowledge mixed with an understanding of the bene ts of economic freedom, add a strong dash of humor, and top it off with a cold beer. Have a Bob & Ben Eye-Opener and you'll feel like (and live in a place where you can make) a million dollars!" -- P.J. O'Rourke * author of #1 New York Times bestseller Parliament of Whores *
