The Myth of the Free Market by Mark A. Martinez is exceptionally well researched and written. It reads more like a text book than a casual reader and, as such, should be required reading for every senior high school student in America. It thoroughly demolishes the concept that free markets exist on anything larger than a local scale and cogently explains why free markets on a larger scale are probably not possible. Beyond high school, it should be taught in every MBA and graduate economics program so that those who manage the financial empire actually have some relevant information about how things really work and are better able to cope with day to day reality. It is high time that delusional thinking stop being the core operating mode in both the private and public policy sectors of our economic world.
