Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The authors, both economists at the Claremont Economics Institute in California, present in clear terminology a look at macroeconomics, stressing the differences between two economies--the production economy, which looks at new goods, services, and savings and investment, and the portfolio economy, which examines previous economic activity. Using historical principles, management savvy, and the willingness to use capital money to rebuild older factories into efficient production units (just as the United States helped Western Europe and Japan get on their feet after World War II), a strong economy can be achieved. A thought-provoking look at a future economic scenario.
- Steve Mayover, Free Lib . of Philadelphia

5 stars for cellulose and book binding and 1/2 of a star for intellectual content. The people who put such reasoning together are somehow in mid of Nineteen century in need of mental retooling. What they lack is personal on the ground experience what undereducated retrained human dolphins have - the collapse of ordinary family what was mainstay support of industrial society - now it is a partnership for credit rating agency questionnaire . Get real the second industrial revolution was New Deal - what people are now brought on from Kindergarten to Princeton MIT is The illusion - scientific illusion of Homo Sapient without quality of his own. Have they not realised that growth real growth of society is pernicious process what legal acrobatic amplified by 24/7 media reporting from the scene of crimes cannot cover up or stimulate as Football match by ticket sales. Where those people live in what dimension? even that Trump's apprentice has got more reality than their Lysenko's mental output by experts.
