WASHINGTON, December 7, 2009 – In Voodoo Anyone? How to Understand Economics Without Really Trying, journalist and educator Christopher T. Warden shows how markets work and what happens when they are bypassed. Warden passed away in January of 2009; Voodoo Anyone? is being published posthumously by Accuracy in Academia.
“This is a book that’s long been needed — and is needed nowadays more than ever… As the reader of these pages will discover, [Warden] had a knack for putting complicated things in everyday language, using anecdotes and familiar examples that made his points in forceful, clear, and frequently humorous fashion,” wrote M. Stanton Evans, author & contributing editor to Human Events, in the foreword for Voodoo.
Written as a textbook for college students, consumers, CEOs, politicians and journalists, Voodoo Anyone? shows how government intervention, not failed markets, caused the major financial crises of our time.
