Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

A modern sequel to the famous Gulliver's Travels, this is a humorous parody of our monetary system. In the original the tiny people of Lilliput carried our pet political beliefs to hilarious absurdity, and in this sequel they do the same to our pet economic beliefs. See how long you can keep a straight face as Gulliver spins his yarn of the quaint economy of Lilliput.
