This section of the book was written to explain how government has been useful in helping free markets work more effectively. Following a timeline from the Pilgrims to the present, it describes how changes in laws have affected the US economy. It is designed for several types of readers:
1. High school students in any social studies class who would benefit from understanding the role of government in the economy. The book parallels US history, so would be ideal with a US History course.
2. Students in any basic economics course. When combined with "The Invisible Hand," all basic concepts established by the National Council on Economic Education (in the prior pages 45-47) are covered.
3. Adults who want to get ahead by acquiring a grasp of how government actions affect business success.
