Summary A novel on the global economy? Russell Roberts breaks all the rules in this provocative and whimsical look at the key international economic issues facing America and American business. The choice stars the ghost of David Ricardo, a 19th century economist. To get his wings he must persuade the CEO of an American television manufacturing company that imports are good for America, even if they destroy the domestic television industry ... This new edition of The Choice has updated data and new and expanded discussions of timely topics."--Cover, p.4.
