With a verve and felicity of phrase that makes challenging and substantial writing exciting reading, a German-American world citizen explodes some further aspects of the ""folklore of capitalism"" -- facts, figures, theories and philosophies that have packed our everyday thinking. Not debunking so much as air-conditioning, which exposes poisons of propaganda as well as innocent inaccuracies of thought and definition, deflation, economic causes of war, the have and have-not nations, Britain ""degeneracy"",""decadent democracy"", Hitler's invincibility, etc. Amazing objectivity and clarity. Helps remove the debris of obsolete ideas in this world we live in. Grand reading.
