'Economics In One Lesson' Apparently Doesn't Include Pricing; Kindle Version Most Expensive

from the let's-try-that-again dept

Copycense, who has done a really bangup job in pointing out some ironic ebook pricing decisions, has another one. The book "Economics in One Lesson," by Henry Hazilitt is available new from Amazon in paperback for $7.95... or at $9.99 for the Kindle. Apparently, "Economics In One Lesson" either doesn't include a section on pricing... or whoever did the pricing on the book didn't read that section...

    Economics in one lesson?

    You don't need a book for that. Heck, I can do it in quotations:

    "Economics is extremely useful as a form of employment for economists." John Kenneth Galbraith (1908 - 2006)

    "An economist is an expert who will know tomorrow why the things he predicted yesterday didn't happen today." Laurence J. Peter (1919 - 1988)

    "When the IMF and the World Bank force a country to cut wages, lay off workers, produce for export instead of their own people, and sell off public property to cronies for less than its value, that's called "economic reform” "

    And, of course, the reason the Republicans especially are so hot to nuke the US economy and are doing their best to destroy it:

    “True individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made.” - Franklin D. Roosevelt
