At the Heritage Foundation blogger’s briefing from 12-1 on December 15, 2009, M. Stanton Evans will be giving a few remarks on Voodoo Anyone? How to Understand Economics Without Really Trying.
Evans wrote the forward to Accuracy in Academia’s first textbook by the late Christopher T. Warden and had served as a friend and mentor to him. “This is a book that’s long been needed—and is needed nowadays more than ever,” Evans wrote in the forward. “‘Economics for journalists’ may sound like a dry, academic subject, but as recent events have shown is anything but.”
“With financial institutions, housing markets, the auto industry and numerous others crashing down around us, economic topics in the past few years have come to dominate the headlines.” As a veteran journalist and author, Evans has covered the economic policies of nine presidents in books, columns, magazine articles and broadcasts.
Malcolm A. Kline is the executive director of Accuracy in Academia.
