Ben Stein's new book "The Capitalist Code" – in which the veteran actor and economist explains the truth about capitalism to young people – has received a boffo review from the Washington Times.

"The Capitalist Code: It Can Save Your Life and Make You Very Rich," is "the latest in a series of books aimed at younger readers with whom he has established a unique rapport," John R. Coyne Jr. writes in the Times.

Stein's intention, Coyne says, "is to talk about basic investing in a down-to-earth and commonsensical way . . . [and his] the prose always direct and straightforward, never abstract or complex."

In the book, published by Humanix, Stein attempts to "set the record straight about capitalism in the United States" ― that it is not the "rigged system" young people are led to believe.

"Life can be faced by moaning and complaining or it can be faced by study, work, optimism, and faith in the free capitalist system. Guess which side gets the happier life?" Stein wrote.

Also praising the book is billionaire investor Warren Buffett, who says by following Stein's advice, "you will do far better than almost all investors."

And the Conservative Book Club also weighed in, praising Stein's "entertaining and informative style that has captivated generations."

"[Stein] refutes the current notion that the corporate system is rigged against 'ordinary citizens' and explains how corporate stock ownership is the best one every devised to give workers and savers a route to financial comfort and security," the club said.

Stein, who has appeared in such box-office smashes as "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and "Honeymoon in Vegas," also writes the Dreemz column for Newsmax Magazine.
