Description

After decades covering war and disaster, bestselling author and acclaimed satirist P. J. O’Rourke takes on his scariest subjects yet? business, investment, finance and the political chicanery behind them.Want to get rich overnight for free in 3 easy steps with no risk? Then don’t buy this book. (Actually, if you believe there’s a book that can do that, you shouldn’t buy any books because you probably can’t read.) P.J.’s approach to business, investment and finance is different. He takes the risks for you in his chapter ‘How I Learned Economics by Watching People Try to Kill Each Other.’ He proposes ‘A Way to Raise Taxes That We’ll All Love’?a 200% tax on celebrities. He offers a brief history of economic transitions before exploring the world of high-tech innovation with a chapter on ‘Unnovations,’ which asks, ‘The Internet?whose idea was it to put all the idiots on earth in touch with each other?’ He pokes fun at bitcoin, and closes with a fanciful short story about the morning that he wakes up and finds that all the world’s goods and services are free! This is P.J. at his finest, a book not to be missed.
