P. J. O'Rourke takes on his scariest subjects yet --- business, investment, finance, and the political chicanery behind them. Want to get rich overnight for free in 3 easy steps with no risk? Then dont buy this book. (Actually, if you believe theres a book that can do that, you shouldnt buy any books because you probably cant read.) P.J.s approach to business, investment, and finance is different. He takes the risks for you in his chapter zHow I Learned Economics by Watching People Try to Kill Each Other.y He proposes zA Way to Raise Taxes That Well All Loveya 200% tax on celebrities. He offers a brief history of economic transitions before exploring the world of high tech innovation with a chapter on zUnnovations,y which asks, zThe Internetwhose idea was it to put all the idiots on earth in touch with each other?y He misunderstands bitcoin, which seems zlike a weird scam invented by strange geeks with weaponized slide rules in the high school Evil Math Club.y He closes with a fanciful short story about the morning that P.J. wakes up and finds that all the worlds goods and services are free! This is P.J. at his finest, a book not to be missed.
