P.J. O’Rourke sets off in his book Eat the Rich to see international examples of good and bad economic systems. His hope is to answer the following core question “Why do some places prosper and other places suck?” (O’Rourke, 1998).
O’Rourke’s sharp wit and enjoyable writing style takes the reader on a journey that will make them laugh out loud, yet deeply challenge conceived notions about economic systems.
