“Mark Skousen is one of the best financial economists I know. His books on free-market economics and investing can’t be beat. Like me he’s upbeat and optimistic about supply-side/Austrian economics, and has been instrumental in educating students, business people, government leaders, and fellow economists on sound economics and finance. I urge you to read his book and follow his simple, powerful investment strategy in Investing in One Lesson.”
