Blake Kernan This modern, politically charged book is a fantastic insight on an influential, highly intelligent man s perspective on the state and workings of the current economy Joe Kernan breaks down the important ideas and concepts that area all involved in the understanding of the economy Joe Kernan compares capitalist and progressive ideals although his bias is clear This book was written fairly recently so it is extremely relevant to the current standing of the United States economy The author approaches this topic with a very capitalist bias he believes that theopen an economy is, the better it will be for the nation s businesses and corporations The rich people should not be punished for their wealth and success, there must be classes because if there was not our country would turn into a socialist nation with minimal freedom in the business market because nobody can besuccessful than another It is in a sense violating the very foundation that the United States of America stands for Joe Kernan also takes a child s perspective on the economy to exhibit and analyze our teacher s influence on our children s view on the economy With Kernan being a very obviously capitalist father, he is unhappy that his daughter is being taught by a government paid teacher that relies on a government rich economy His daughter s views are being altered by these teachers in a way that Joe Kernan thinks is incorrect This brings very interesting issues about economic education in modern America to the surface The way our nation s children are being educated about the economy is very biased This is breeding a nation of socialist youth that will one day run the United States His daughter s perspective also prompts Joe Kernan to break down the fundamentals of the economic system in its most simple and basic terms This helps the reader understand the complex workings of our economy and helps them develop their own opinion Although his interpretation does push the reader to think a certain way The CNN reporter explains his reasons behind his capitalist opinions very logically The way he presents his information keeps the content interesting and easy to relate to His approach to the book is as if he were having a conversation with his daughter just elaborated into a greater extent Coming into this book I had a very limited knowledge of the economy yet I was still able to keep up with the pace and complexity of the content because of Joe Kernan s simple approach This book proved to be extremely informative and intellectually stimulating MY understand of the United States economy has definitely expanded as well as my opinions on the current stand of this unstable, controversial economic market that exists today It is important to be informed but also not be too heavily influenced by the author s bias Overall, this book was a fantastic read because it explained a complex topic in a very easy to understand way that kept me interested throughout When Joe Kernan refers to Time for Kids He uses the quote lower interest rates five people the comfort that government will do whatever it can to solve this crisis to emphasize how big of a progressive influence our children are being exposed to This reminded me of our many in class discussions about how Americans have taken advantage of the low interest rate loans to such an extent that they out banks in huge debt because they were not able to pay back the money they took out Our discussions in class and reading this book has lead me to belive that many American eat up progressive ideas because they do not do research to see the flaws in the proposed ideas that look simple and easy on the surface Another quote that reminded me of current controversial problems was Progressives always overvalue a career spent providing people with charity undervalue a life spent providing them with jobs This quote connects to me personally to my family because my father is a small business owner In the past couple years we have encountered many financial problems because of laws and taxes being enacted on small business owners For example, my father is losing a lot of business because of the push of government distributed debit cards that replace unemployment checks This negatively impacts him because he cashes checks, and a very large portion are unemployment checks With this source of revenue he is slowly losing his business just because the government failed to think of the impact it would have on people like my father who is clearly not of any importance in comparison to the government employees that are always being defended by the general public Kernan s bias is clear throughout the book He is obviously a very passionate capitalist that looks down on progressive ideas This bias is clear in quotes such as Theyou know about economics, the less likely you are to support the Progressive belief in higher minimum wages they actually raise unemployment In this quote Kernan expresses his opinion on how the Progressives are taking the completely wrong approach on fixing the economy He believes they are incorrect with this idea because if the minimum wages are increased, employers will be less likely to want to higheremployees This would in turn create even less jobs andpeople on the streets Another quote that expresses Kernan s bias is Progressives have pretty mixed feelings about progress While it s true that Progressives have long supported stuff that just about everyone would call progress like woman s suffrage when it comes to policies that promote material progress you know, improving people s wealth, choice, and living conditions , Progressives are usually the ones pulling back on the reins and yelling WhoaJoe Kernan exhibits his belief that Progressives are not progressive at all that they want to keep the nation s market at a standstill because they are afraid to change anything too drastically in a fear of a loss of government control Overall Joe Kernan firmly believes that economic freedom is just as important as religious freedom or freedom of speech This bias is a fresh point of view for the majority of young people because they have always been told that the government had their best interest for their financial well being while the government is really oppressing their economic development by trying to keep everyone equivalent in financial terms This new point of view makes me want to questionof the government s decisions and to not just accept all of the laws and tariffs that are being enforced on me Although I believe the author s intended audience was middle aged adults involved in a capitalist dependent job, the book is written in a way that makes capitalism appealing to a younger generation I think this book could easily recruitcapitalist supporters from the youth because of it s easy to understand way of expressing capitalism and strong reasoning behind the ideas presented This book was great Part Econ primer, part social commentary, part Poli Sci History 101, this book is a must read for anyone without an advance degree in economics interested in the state of the world and what s going on with our society,

insisted that there be some internal structure But this is the least of my issues with the book.I listen to conservative talk radio sometimes, which ranges from horrifically bad to interesting and occasionally even fair and balanced This book however, managed to have none of the wit, was overbearing in ways that come straight out of the standard anti liberal playbook, and managed to insult my intelligence with incorrect oversimplifications of complex issues In the end, however, I realize that the true point of the book is as masked as the real reasoning behind its arguments The causal tossing around of insults and dismissal of values disagreeing with the author s seems to be the real agenda to sell controversy and this is a goal shared by his putative opponents The fact that their might be real disagreement about the relative merits of government intervention in commerce, or the need to protect both jobs and the economy, or how to address the existence of economic growth that leads to stagnant real wages for 95% of the population is irrelevant Because in a place where the free market is king, artificial disagreement to sell books certainly trumps thoughtfulness or willingness to admit that there is complexity in the world I won this through GoodReads s First Reads program.As a parent with a child in the public school system, I found this a book a wonderful read

skip the financial sections of the Wall Street Journal in favor of the political or human interest sections I know the free market system is an important part of our freedom, but I couldn t articulate the reasons I honestly dreaded trying to wade through a book on finances However, I was hooked in the preface when Joe Kernen said, We believe that free market capitalism is not only the most powerful engine for human prosperity ever but also history s strongest force for freedom and human advancement We believe no we know that economic freedom is as important as religious freedom or freedom of speech We believe that productive work, freely exchanged, is a virtue, just like charity feely given Wow Well said If you want to be able to understand and share these ideas with your kids and the people around you, BUY THIS BOOK A great primer which nicely contrasts the free market and progressive approaches to macroeconomics Kernen has some great quotes reminiscent of classical authors including, competition is the engine that allocates resources to their highest valued use He defines lots of juicy economics terms such as the Higgs effect , the Gekko problem and externalities There

What?!: Defending Our Kids from the Liberal Assault on Capitalism ☜ CNBC anchor Joe Kernen rebels against the liberal brainwashing of his young daughter by the mainstream media and educational establishment Every morning on CNBC s top rated show Squawk Box, Joe Kernen asks tough questions And at home he does the same with his ten year old daughter, Blake What are you learning in school What TV shows do you like What message did you get from that movie Your teacher said what Blake s unsettling responses including that no matter how bad things get, the government will take care of us aren t surprising in an era when Washington takes over car companies, nationalizes banks, and spends a trillion dollars stimulating the economy Something had to be done to teach Blake the value of capitalism Kernen shows that American culture is now so hostile to free markets that even animated movies are hard to tell from propaganda grocery stores are billboards for the virtues of preindustrial food and classrooms do a better job teaching economic misinformation that arithmetic To Kernen, this isn t just wrong, it s practically criminal An unapologetic cheerleader for the free enterprise system, he teaches Blake that it s not only the world s greatest engine for prosperity, but also essential for human freedom As he tries to raise his children properly, even if he has to teach the basics himself, Kernen will have every conservative parent in America cheering him on This book is one of my favorites that I have won through the first reads program, and I am already encouraging others to read it Joe Kernen does an excellent job using simple illustrations and factual information to get free market economic principles across to his fifth grade daughter I appreciate

This book is one of my favorites that I have won through the first reads program, and I am already encouraging others to read it Joe Kernen does an excellent job using simple illustrations and factual information to get free market economic principles across to his fifth grade daughter I appreciate the fact that he does not simply spout ideas and rhetoric with no evidence or background, as many do when having political arguments, but backs everything up with concrete examples and facts that are very enlightening Even though this is about economics, it is very interesting If I did not already believe in the value of the free enterprise system before reading this book, I think Mr Kernen would have convinced me Another Goodreads ARC, this one pretty much a surprisingly competent primer on current conservative economic thought in the foil of a guy teaching his kids It works for what it is, but is, again, one of those books that someone who might need to read it will never find and the people who want to read it won t get much new information from it I honestly wish I hadto say about this, but that pretty much covers the details in a nutshell Probably closer to a 3.5, all things being equal.
