Reviews

"From one of America's most noted conservative economists, a short, original book that offers some unconventional ideas about how to think about common economic topics."--Baltimore Sun
"Thomas Sowell marshals his arguments with admirable clarity and authority. There is not a chapter in which he does not produce a statistic that both surprises and overturns received wisdom."--The Economist
"Sowell's book dismantles many of the pervasive fallacies running rampant in politics today, broken into categories of urban life, gender, academia, income, race, and the problems of the third world. ... In Economic Facts and Fallacies, as in his other work, Sowell makes a persuasive and powerful case, armed with a solid arsenal of statistics, numbers, and historical facts."--RealClearPolitics.com
"This readable volume is a useful primer exposing how economics relates to the social issues that affect our country."--Publishers Weekly
