The media reports stories daily about the intrusion of big government and the personal and economic freedoms of Americans. These stories have included the Internal Revenue Service, the Associated Press, the collapse of the housing market, and politically motivated government loans. Martin Mazorra’s book, Leaving Liberty? explores the negative impacts of a growing government.
Mazorra breaks down key arguments and important information about government, political practices and economics into clear and concise daily essays. Mazorra does not shy away from discussing the long-term effects of a growing government on the American people. He argues that the success of our economy is based on the entrepreneurial drive of individuals, not the picking of winners and losers by a central government.
As Kirkus Indie Reviews states, “Mazorra’s doctrines definitely tilt right, but he’s evenhanded in his criticisms of Republicans and Democrats in their common subservience to special interests and preference for expedient politics over sound policy.”
With almost 30 years in the fields of economics and investment, Mazorra’s experience, knowledge and strong belief in the power of the free market provide an interesting perspective on today’s economic and political issues.
This collection of essays is a thought-provoking overview of topics ranging from bailouts and our national debt to unemployment and minimum wage. Readers who desire to learn more on these subjects, as well as professionals in the related fields, will gain an insight into the role of politics and the benefits of a free-market economy.
