Format: Mass Market Paperback
The importance of this short but essential summary of economic thought in the late 1970s (the decade of "malaise") is critical to understanding the growth of the economy today. This book demonstrates the true power of an idea whose time has (and had) come--supply side economics. Jack Kemp, along with Jude Wanniski and Ronald Reagan started the revolution--pick up this book and see how it happened.

This is a very clear statement of middle of the road Republicanism at its best. Though a bit dated with regards to some policy particulars (though, surprisingly, not that many) this book excels in putting forward a practical political philosophy that, I think, is shared by most Americans today. Jack Kemp was born in Los Angeles, played some mighty fine football, represented the Buffalo, NY region as Congressman, and served as HUD cabinet secretary in the Reagan administration as well as vice-presidential candidate for Bob Dole. It's a darn shame he was never elected to higher national office. He was a good and decent man. This book serves to remind us that sometimes we need to revisit our past to reclaim our future. This is a great read.

Format: Hardcover
With the recent passing of Jack Kemp, I decided to dedicate some time to re-reading some of his work. This book was written 30 years ago. Most of it still holds true today. For the Conservative, this should be on the bookshelf somewhere near Barry Goldwater's The Conscience of the Conservative.

While I'm no economist, the details about the economy and taxes were pretty detailed, and I really have no idea where these concepts are today, with regard to the numbers of the 2000's and not the 1970's. If you prefer to just read the good nuts and bolts of Conservative politics, pick up this book and just read Chapters 1, 3, and 10. This is a short book, rather like Goldwater's, and well worth the time.

I bought this book because recently I've heard so many references to Jack Kemp, and couldn't remember anything special about him. He wrote two books that I knew of, so I bought them both from marketplace dealers (they're out of print.) I guess he was a good politician and citizen, but it was hard for me to relate to what was happening as far back as the eighties. I doubt that anyone but a historian would want to read it.
