Best economics text ever!

A very one sided debate
Starts off strong with economic fundamentals laid out clearly, however spends majority of later chapters presenting a very one sided view of all the negative effects of government regulation. The points presented are valid, however it constantly presents and rebut frail token counter arguments to a point that quickly stopped trusting the writer is presenting a balanced view.
I also found the narrator difficult to take seriously.
