Professor Joseph Heath talks about his new book "Filthy Lucre" and the many fundamental economic misconceptions on both the left and right of the political spectrum. From the 2009 Spring Edition of the Ottawa International Writers Festival at Saint Brigid's Centre for the Arts and Humanities.
Joseph Heath, co-author of the international bestseller The Rebel Sell, wants to improve our economic literacy and empower us with new ideas. In Filthy Lucre, he draws on everyday examples to skewer the six favourite economic fallacies of the right, before impaling the six favourite fallacies of the left. Heath leaves no sacred cows untipped as he breaks down complex arguments and shows how the monetary world really works.
