Theft is Legal by Svetoslav S. Elenkov Book Review

After having lived through various government regimes, Svetoslav Elenkov immigrated to the United States. Using his experiences as a guide, he warns of possibilities that arise in nations’ economies. Via life lessons and stories, he examines such topics as hyper-inflation, insurance, and the welfare systems. Stories of his family are touching and help the reader further understand his passion regarding economics.

Truthfully, as a non-fiction piece this book would serve well as an educational piece (perhaps as college-level required reading) or to be read by politicians. Economics majors or those in a similar field could glean quite a bit of wisdom here.

With so much media attention dedicated to the struggle of nations like Greece and on America’s recession, I gather that many readers would appreciate Mr. Elenkov’s views. I found fault with only one of his viewpoints. His take on the welfare system was controversial, but possibly only to me. There are a few people who simply cannot work. A few bad apples milk it for sure, but not all.

One point he made regarding for new cars was astonishing. I’d had no idea. Also, I did appreciate his viewpoint on opening businesses in destitute areas & the benefits of doing so. Hopefully, an entrepreneur will heed his advice.

Educational and extremely focused, I’d recommend ‘Theft Is Legal’ to a business-minded audience and rate it 4 out of 5 stars.

I received 1 eBook in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
