Format: Paperback
What a timely book, coming out near the peak of the current election season! Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said "Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions. Nothing pains some people more than having to think."

"The Clinton Economic Boom, and Other Myths of the Clinton Presidency" is an easy to read book, by a thinker, for thinkers unwilling to settle for soundbites and the conventional wisdom, as they face key decisions that will affect the future of this great country.

This meticulously researched book, with nearly 300 references, is both an entertaining and educational read. Brown carefully, thorougly, and convincingly investigates and documents the primary contributory causes of the economic boom, balanced budget, and welfare reform that occurred during the Clinton years. Giving credit where credit is due, Brown's painstaking determination of where credit is due, or not, is based on solid data.

This book will be engaging to people of all political persuasions. Though the primary focus is on debunking myths, the book details several policy issues where Clinton was "Out in Front." The book also has a section, of particular interest to policy makers, on the lessons learned from the economic boom of the 90's.

I'm a better prepared citizen and voter, having read this book. You will be too.

The Clinton Economic Boomis a must read for the scholar and interested bystander alike. Whether your interest is history, economics, politics, journalism or some other field, you will find this book a compelling read. From the opening paragraph through to the conclusion, Mr. Brown puts forth compelling arguments backed by carefully researched and documented evidence. Whether one agrees or not with the premise behind the arguments, one is sure to at least have some doubts about the conventional wisdom surrounding the boom of the Clinton years. Too often we get bombarded by the media with stuff that we eventually come to believe as true without ever bothering to question its veracity. Then along comes Mr. Brown to not only challenge the widely accepted notion that Mr. Clinton was primarily responsible for the economic boom during his presidency, but to lay out convincing evidence that Mr, Clinton had little or nothing to do with the phenomenon commonly called the Clinton Economic Boom.

I will highly recommend this book for anyone interested in the economic debate during the current election season, as well as those interested in getting their hands on a well written work.

This book provides an in-depth, well-researched look at the influencing factors behind the 'boom' years during the Clinton presidency in the 1990's. It makes a compelling case that economic conditions at the time combined to create a 'perfect storm' of prosperity, rather than any particular actions taken by the administration.

The factual, non-political nature of the book makes it a credible source of historical perspective. Perhaps the new Obama administration should read it to get some pointers . . .

Since a large segment of the public can't differentiate between reality and Reality TV, they attach to whatever theory makes them feel comfortable, and then, due to confirmation bias, resist any attempt to extract them from their liking.
This book demonstrates how quickly the American public forgets. How quickly Americans devolve into a mob-like rule.

For me, as an average citizen that takes an interest into politics, wall street, the economy, and how they all relate to each other--this book just confirms what I already knew, but at the same time, I was (also)quick to forget--or just got comfortable with.

I would recommend this book as a well researched,quick read, and an excellent reminder of the recent past of where we've been, how far we have come and where we might or could go in the future,as a nation.

BTW--I agree with the earlier review by Jasper Kuria with regard to his following #1 concern: "If a confluence of factors that Clinton had nothing to do with had led to a depression wouldn't we have blamed him?"
My lingering concern is the following:
Is this what is happening with President Obama currently??
Time for that 2nd book in a series Mr. Brown!
I, for one, would be quick to pick it up!

This book is a refreshing view of the facts around the economic boom and the balancing of the federal budget during the late 90's when Bill Clinton was president and the Republicans controlled the House of Representatives. The bottom line, there were many factors that caused the economy to succeed and increase tax revenues, most of which had nothing to do with Republican or Democratic policy during this timeframe.

When politicians from both sides of the isle are making all kinds of promises about how to fix the current economy and national debt, it is refreshing to refer to the facts of this period of time. Marbue has done an excellent job of presenting the causes of the economic boom and not getting bogged down with a political agenda.

I highly recommend this book.
