Summary

History abounds with examples of government officials making decisions, well-intentioned or otherwise, that harm others. Unfortunately, these unintended consequences are never anticipated, and rarely considered once they occur. As the Tuttle Twins find in their latest adventure, central planning can ruin people's lives. Nobel Prize winning economist FA Hayek's famous book The Road to Serfdom comes to life in this edition, showing that when people get what they wish for, they often get much more than they bargained. Listen as Ethan and Emily investigate a new road built to take travelers to a beach named Surfdom - and the disruption it brings to the entire community. Recommended listening age: 5-11.

Great for kids and grown ups

Though the reading was slower to appeal to younger children, the story was well written and enjoyable. It's also great for short attention spans - about 20 min long. This book provides a good introduction to principles of individualism vs collectivism, unintended consequences, and eminent domain as shared by economist F.A. Hayek in his classic "Road to Serfdom".
