Wealth & Poverty Review The New Edition of Wealth and Poverty is Now Available!

For months, I’ve been looking forward to the release of the new edition of George Gilder’s classic book Wealth and Poverty. I count Wealth and Poverty in the top five books for persuading me of the virtues of a free economy. It’s hard to imagine a more timely message for 2012, when many Americans are once again confused on such questions. The new edition has a significant amount of new text, and a terrific foreword by Steve Forbes.
You can get foretaste of the book by reading Forbes’ foreword, which is available at right now.
