CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Renowned investor and author Hunter Lewis shares his New York Times-heralded “highly provocative” opinions in his two newest economic management books, “Free Prices Now!: Fixing the Economy by Abolishing the Fed” and “Crony Capitalism in America: 2008-2012” (September 1, AC2 Books).
“Hunter Lewis shows why ending the Federal Reserve’s control over the monetary system is key to restoring prosperity and raising living standards for all Americans.”
Co-founding a global investment firm and serving as an advisor to the International Monetary Fund and World Bank as well as leading universities, has given Lewis a unique perspective on America’s struggling economy, and how exactly to turn it around.
Just as in his previous six books, the Forbes-named “Business Visionary” translates complex economic concepts into clear, easier-to-grasp terms for his readers. His upcoming non-fiction releases deliver a one-two punch, exposing profound and little understood flaws in the management of the nation’s economy.
“Free Prices Now!” offers a fascinating look at job loss, poverty and everything in between. Lewis boldly dissects the problems behind America’s economic crisis and offers a simple but sweeping solution: restore honest, un-manipulated prices in our economy. Former GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul says “Hunter Lewis shows why ending the Federal Reserve’s control over the monetary system is key to restoring prosperity and raising living standards for all Americans.”
“Crony Capitalism in America” is especially for readers tired of hearing the same excuses for the nation’s economic meltdown. Lewis unflinchingly cuts through the confusion to show how bad economic policies lead to more and more corruption. In doing so, he provides a behind-the-scenes peek at powerful political circles that control America’s future. And again, he pushes the envelope with fresh, innovative solutions.
“It rips back the curtain on the competition-crushing practices that emerge when political and corporate cronies align,” says Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute and author of the New York Times bestseller “Throw Them All Out.”
Co-founder of AgainstCronyCapitalism.org, Lewis has also contributed articles to numerous international and financial publications and has been invited to give his expert opinion on the economy on ABC’s Money Matters, NBC’s Today and many other television and radio programs. As a philanthropist, Lewis has served on boards and committees of 15 not-for-profit organizations.
