Synopses & Reviews
This is a collection of Walter Williams' essays, drawn from his syndicated column. Williams writes with brilliant clarity--and he doesn't mince words. He destroys a number of prevailing myths, such as that economic and social disparities are the result of racism and that economic sanctions will help punish the South African blacks more that the whites. He shows how government regulations hinder rather than help the disadvantaged. Williams explains why the nature of congressmen is not to act in the national interest. Listening to these columns is both entertaining and enlightening. Thomas Sowell has said of Williams and this book, "Walter is (1) black, (2) opposed to the liberal cult, (3) talks sense, and (4) shows a sense of humor in his writings. The book is a real antidote to the prevailing mush of our times."
