One third history, one third economics, and one third fiction, Red Plenty is the best book you can read to get inside the minds of those who dreamed that a planned economy could beat capitalism and provide abundance for everyone. If you’ve read, or if you have just wondered about, Mises on Socialism and Hayek on Socialist Calculation, and you have pondered how anyone could possibly have fallen for anything as fallible as a planned economy, this is the book that will help you see why the dream seemed so appealing, and why it fell apart so fast.
