Economic Facts and Fallacies is designed for people who want to understand economic issues without getting bogged down in economic jargon, graphs, or political rhetoric. Writing in a lively manner that does not require any prior knowledge of economics, Thomas Sowell exposes some of the most popular fallacies about economic issues, including many that are widely disseminated in the media and by politicians: fallacies about urban problems, income differences, male-female economic differences, academia, race, and Third World countries. While all of these fallacies have a certain plausibility that gives them their staying power, this makes it even more important to carefully examine their flaws. Sowell holds these beliefs under the microscope and draws conclusions that are sure to inspire rigorous debate.

Sowell is a classic Liberal, which, in today's parlance would be labeled "Conservative". He outlines many such cases where those holding opposite ideas coopt the language being used and beguile less rigorous thinkers. He presents persuasively while grounding arguments in analysis of factual situations that play out over years or even generations. Highly recommended.
