Applied Economics, Second Ed. (by Thomas Sowell) for iOS

By Blackstone Audio $9.99

Developer's Description

APPLIED ECONOMICS, SECOND EDITION by Thomas Sowell (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).Applied Economics explains the application of economics to such major world problems as housing, medical care, discrimination, and the economic development of nations. To address those questions particularly relevant to our times, this new, expanded edition includes chapters on the economics of immigration, the economics of organ transplants, the creative financing of home buying that led to the current mortgage crisis, and on the political and economic incentives that lead to a neglect of infrastructure in general and, in particular, to the diversion of money earmarked for highways to mass transit. The book retains its easy readability, even for people with no prior knowledge of economics.Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audios narrator, Bill Wallace. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here. EXPERIENCE. About 11.5 hours of narration.
