Mr. Clarey has been found racist by a judge and sexist by people who can read. Here are some delightful quotes from the book!
"Women like tall, strong, aloof, confident a******s who ignore them and treat them like s***."
"In short (and history will prove this true), feminism's and the state's intrusion in to family life has resulted in the decay and inevitable destruction of society."
"Where women are weak, men are strong. Where men suck at doing things, women excel. And where men like to play with boobies, women like having their boobies played with."
"Matter of fact, I would contend the entire economics profession is more or less obsolete because anybody can through self-study become just as good, if not, a better economist than those who were brainwashed at school."
"Motorcycles are the salvation of all young men. Like beer and video games, they are a gift from God and he wants you to ride them."
"And most importantly, should we find ourselves in a disagreement with a cute liberal girl we'd like to sleep with, we have armed and informed ourselves to the point we can now use the betting technique discussed in Chapter 12."
Yes indeed, treat women like dirt and ride motorcycles. Sound advice for any young man!
Regardless of how useful the financial advice within may be, the obnoxious pot-shots at any/all non-heteronormative, feminist, or even marginally progressive notions of equality of respect make this book unreadable. You literally just have to flip through this thing for maybe 10 seconds to find quotes like:
"Women are absolutely horrible at managing finances." (Page 392)
"Sadly, the chances of being falsely accused [of rape] are increasing as the definition of rape becomes more liberal and modern women more narcissistic" (Page 246 -- this comes literally two paragraphs after the section about how getting women drunk is a great way to get laid)
"The problem is society has lied to men and women about reality ... they've convinced women that 'big is beautiful' and 'men value educated women.'" (Page 231)
"Most girls major in stupid s***." (Page 384)
That barely covers it. It is very clear that Clarey views women as nothing but a disposable, consumable object that need to be 'handled' over anything else (according to his macho boasting somewhere in this 'book', he has dated over 300 girls. Wow! So masculine!)
Bottom line: Buy a personal finance book from a qualified author, preferably one who is not a total sexist.
These tensions are quickly resolved in the third chapter when Bawerk returns home with one of his regulars only to find his bed occupied by Charlotte, Keynes latest lay. Bawerk is furious and heads to the Cow and Bull Bar to confront his room-mate about this unacceptable behaviour. Keynes is unrepentant and the two come to exchange bottles. The fight is described in intricate detail and is finally broken up two blocks down by Charlotte, who accidentally comes between the two quarrelers. The two lay on the ground, panting and soaked in blood. Finally, Bawerk confesses that he was wrong to judge Keynes for his treatment of females and that he was in fact jealous of Keynes' ability to seduce them in just one night. Keynes in return admits that he admired Bawerk's loyalty and devotion to his small harem. By working together to hide the body, Keynes and Bawerk overcome their differences. And as they cleaned themselves off, their escapades as wingmen flying together through the sexual market place begins.
Ultimately we all know how the story ends, and while there may not be anything new her for fans of obscure economic theories, it is still interesting to read how Keynes and Bawerk took these life experiences and developed the Keynesian and Austrian School's of economic thought. I can wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone who is interested to see how economics was adapted from being solely used to navigate the sexual market place, to being used to understand almost of the big questions.
