The 5 Big Lies About American Business: Combating Smears Against the Free-Market Economy - (MP3 Download)
WHY FEEL EMBARRASSED BY BUSINESS?
Every American benefits every day from the phenomenal productivity of the free market, so why do so many people feel guilty or skeptical about our business system? In this passionately argued, eye-opening book, talk-radio star and bestselling author Michael Medved provides detailed and devastating rebuttals to the most widely circulated smears against capitalism.
MYTH: Big business is bad, small business is good.
TRUTH: Every big business began life as a small business, and every small business today yearns for enough success to become a big business tomorrow. For some productsåäÌÝÌÒlike cars or electrical poweråäÌÝÌÒlittle companies canåäÌÝå»t benefit their workers or customers as reliably as huge corporations.
MYTH: Business executives are overpaid and corrupt.
TRUTH: Top leaders will always command top dollar, and a company canåäÌÝå»t limit executive pay without limiting its access to talent. Ferocious, long-term competition in the corporate world ultimately rewards focus and hard work, not short cuts and corruption.
MYTH: You can count on better treatment from the government than from business.
TRUTH: If a private company deals with you poorly, you can take your business elsewhere. But with the governmentåäÌÝå»s power, you get only two choices: compliance or jail.
Medved responds to business-bashing lies with the slashing wit, irrefutable facts, fascinating historical nuggets, illuminating anecdotes, and liberating clarity that made him one of the top-ten talk-radio hosts in the United States. This audacious
and urgently needed book provides energy and inspiration for a beleaguered free-market system poised for its unstoppable comeback.

As usual Michael has such a great way of explaining complex and/ or controversial subjects in an enjoyable way that is easy to understand. Many of my friends are anti- big business & anti - capitalism & now I feel that I not only have a renewed belief in our American system, but I will be able to enter into an informative discussion with naysayers.
