P.J. O'Rourke: The Politics of Money
P.J. O’Rourke’s commentary and satire have earned him plaudits from around the world. But now O’Rourke is tackling another issue: money. In his new book, None of My Business, he tackles the politics behind how you should conduct your businesses, investments and finances. With chapters such as “How I Learned Economics by Watching People Try to Kill Each Other” and proposals such as a 200 percent tax on celebrities, O’Rourke clearly holds a unique perspective on the proper ways we can spend our money. Where traditional advice goes one way, O’Rourke turns the other.
O’Rourke is a best-selling author and the H.L. Mencken research fellow at the Cato Institute. Having written a number of successful books on subjects ranging from politics to cars to economics, he now tackles the chaos within the world finance and business. Come listen to him explain why “he’s not rich and neither are you.”
