Stalin’s gulag, impoverished North Korea, collapsing Cuba...it’s hard to name a dogma that has failed as spectacularly as socialism. And yet leaders around the world continue to subject millions of people to this dysfunctional, violence-prone ideology. In The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to Socialism, Kevin Williamson reveals the fatal flaw of socialism—that efficient, complex economies simply can’t be centrally planned. But even in America, that hasn’t stopped politicians and bureaucrats from planning, to various extents, the most vital sectors of our economy: public education, energy, and the most arrogant central–planning effort of them all, Obama’s healthcare plan. In this provocative book, Williamson unfolds the grim history of socialism, showing how the ideology has spawned crushing poverty, devastating famines, and horrific wars. Lumbering from one crisis to the next, leaving a trail of economic devastation and environmental catastrophe, socialism has wreaked more havoc, caused more deaths, and impoverished more people than any other ideology in history—especially when you include the victims of fascism, which Williamson notes is simply a variant of socialism. Williamson further demonstrates: Why, contrary to popular belief, socialism in theory is no better than socialism in practiceWhy socialism can’t exist without capitalismHow the energy powerhouse of Venezuela, under socialism, has become an economic basket case subject to rationing and blackoutsHow socialism, not British colonialism, plunged the bountiful economy of India into stagnation and dysfunction—and how capitalism is rescuing itWhy socialism is inextricably linked to communism If you thought socialism went into the dustbin of history with the collapse of the Soviet Union, think again. Socialism is alive and kicking, and it’s already spread further than you know.

Kevin Williamson takes a look at socialism in all its forms, and he uncovers some facts that might make even would–be socialists wince: socialism isn’t just bad for business, but bad for the poor, bad for the environment, and bad for your health.

I purchased this to self-educate myself about socialism in my attempt to understand the thinking of those who believe that this one-step-removed-from-communism is such a good thing for societies. This from a person who has lived within a capitalist society all his life and who has observed the suppressive affect of a socialist environment upon an individual's ambition for advancement in all things.

It is a surprisingly fun read actually. Both informative and well written, it addresses the common myths and wishful thinking of those who like socialism... or at least the idea of it. Socialism is what it is in the real world, not on paper. The author goes into why the ideals go astray... and why they HAVE TO go astray in implementing socialism.

Socialism in Russia is different from socialism in Sweden but when socialism is compared across cultures commonalities appear. He addresses the issue of sorting out what is local or cultural vs. what is tied to socialism itself regardless of the culture that socialism is applied in.

This is our second copy; the first one went astray. : )

I can also recommend:
The Rational Optimist: how prosperity evolves by Matt Ridley
Development as Freedom by Amartya Sen
Reinventing the Bazarr by John McMillan
Liberalism by Von Mises could be a good addition as well (Liberalism in the original sense of the term- it's not what you think.)
Human Action: The Scholar's Edition by Ludwig von Mises

If you start with Politically Incorrect and go down that list you will get a fair start on better understanding socialism, capitalism and free markets, appropriate/inappropriate regulation/intervention by government, and economic growth in both the developed part of the world and the third world, and a bit more besides.

Development as Freedom looks (in part) at freedom of action, and Human Action on the study of the actions people take. That's so simplified as to be misleading... you could say H.A. looks at economic choices as part of a wider framework. Development as Freedom also looks at economics in a broader framework; he examines the freedoms that help foster economic development and enable people to live the kind of lives they have reason to value - with economic growth providing some of the means to their ends.

Friedrich Hayek used the term catallaxy to describe "the order brought about by the mutual adjustment of many individual economies in a market." --You may want to look at some of his work as well.

If you are ready for something heavier, Prices and Production by Freidrich Hayek and The Theory of Money and Credit by Ludwig Von Mises are good choices. I found Von Mises rather hard to read in some sections, but well worth the effort.

If you want to be able to refute your leftist friends with facts, this is the book. Easy to read, well written, explains what happened to Venezuela.

Read this and you'll understand the key points of what you'd learn after two semesters in an HONEST university history course of Russian, Chinese, American, and World History. For the most part, it will help you understand if and how you and your generation have been inoculated, indoctrinated, and molded to think Socialism is a harmless form of organizing a society. Read this book and you'll understand that Socialism is really the bastard child of Communism/Marxism and that today's Liberals are the inheritors and practitioners of this way of life.
