is Rowling the George Lucas of literature?
she doesn't write literature. She is just fun with imagination and you are probably lying if you say you didn't enjoy it as a kid. That isn't to say you wouldn't have had a better time with something with literary merit.

They seem more like fluffy movie scripts than books.
Maybe it's just the YA book-to-movie craze that makes it seem that way.
Which book makes the best factual arguments for capitalism? I am already sold on the ethical and philosophical arguments for the free-market such as personal liberty, the dangers of a large government, the immorality of progressive taxes etc. but now I want to venture into factual and historical proof of capitalism's efficiency. Capitalism and Freedom by Friedman and Basic Economics by Sowell don't have enough factual evidence for me.
