The 5 Big Lies By Michael Medved

From the host of one of the top-five radio talk shows in the nation, with 5 million weekly listeners in more than 200 markets, and the author of the New York Times bestseller The 10 Big Lies About America, comes a timely and forceful defense of America's economic system:



Why is it commonplace for people to place a higher value on government and nonprofit work than on starting a successful business in the private sector? That's because they've been spoon-fed myths about capitalism - our country's lifeblood - for years.

In THE 5 BIG LIES ABOUT AMERICAN BUSINESS: Combating Smears Against the Free-Market Economy, one of the nation's most controversial and popular talk-radio hosts, Michael Medved, boldly tackles the smears and deceptions that underlie the public's bitter, resentful attitude toward capitalism and confirms that our unique corporate system has always benefited, and will continue to energize, our economy and this great country.

Medved takes each lie, dissects it, and provides startling, documented evidence to the contrary. Medved, known as "the smartest guy on radio," does not shy away from controversy and argues passionately to defend the truth. He challenges the five biggest lies told about our economic system:
  • LIE #1: The current economy proves that capitalism is evil and in its final death throes
  • LIE #2: When the rich get richer, the poor get poorer
  • LIE #3: Corporate bosses are overpaid and corrupt
  • LIE #4: Small business is more ethical and more responsible than big business
  • LIE #5: Government is more fair and reliable than business, and citizens should trust government bureaucrats more than they trust for-profit corporations
With the current economic crisis bringing new attention to these old but fiercely promoted myths, THE 5 BIG LIES ABOUT AMERICAN BUSINESS sets the record straight.
