This book will help to clear up the many misunderstandings of basic economics. With this book you can learn about the economy and how it actually works. The authors will show you how the best understanding of economics conforms with what the Bible teaches about economics. As Americans become more dependent upon big government, they become more reluctant to assume responsibility for their own actions. Like Esau in the Old Testament, they are trading their birthright of liberty and independence from a mess of big government pottage. We need to get away from a governmental bureaucracy that controls so many aspects of our lives. We need and deserve a smaller, more efficient government. We need to rediscover and celebrate the freedom we have to make decisions and accept the responsibility that comes with that freedom.
