On December 17, 2009, author M. Stanton Evans will guest on Accuracy in Media’s blog talk radio show. Evans will discuss Accuracy in Academia’s first textbook, Voodoo Anyone? How to Understand Economics Without Really Trying.
Evans wrote the forward to Voodoo Anyone? and to a large degree served as its inspiration. He was a friend and mentor to the late author, Christopher T. Warden, for the last 25 of his 51 years of life.
Warden, who taught at Troy University at the time of his death, was one of the few academics who understood that third party payments, either directly by the government or induced by its policies, were not the solution to America’s health care woes but their cause.
“So what are they proposing in Congress to fix the system, including some Republicans?” Evans asked the audience at the Heritage Foundation’s blogger’s briefing on December 15, 2009, “More third Party payment.”
Malcolm A. Kline is the executive director of Accuracy in Academia.
