Economics at the Wheel is about cars and driving, and all the problems that cars and drivers create for America. In his examination of automobiles, driving habits, and government policies, Richard Porter presents an analysis and critique of cars and the ways they are regulated.

Economics at the Wheel is about cars and driving, and all the problems that cars and drivers create for America. His conclusions are both surprising and compelling.

This is a great book. It's quick, concise, well-organized, easy to understand, not dumbed down, practical ... I could go on. Plus, Prof Porter actually emailed back when I wrote him with comments and questions. The book includes questions throughout for further thought, the answers to which are in the back and resemble class notes. I wish I could find a book as good as this on more topics.

A wonderful book. There is no fluff, gets right to the point and does not compromise on the math. The exercises are nice and can be used in lectures. Overall a really nice experience reading the book.
