Democrats could win elections with these facts. The fact that they don't use them tells me that they have been bought off. The author isn't making any of this up. This is what every educated person knows. Forbes magazine a capitalist tool says if you want to help the economy vote Democrat Personal disposable income has grown nearly 6 times more under Democratic presidents. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has grown 7 times more under Democratic presidents Corporate profits have grown over 16% more per year under Democratic presidents (they actually declined under Republicans by an average of 4.53%/year). Average annual compound return on the stock market has been 18 times greater under Democratic presidents (If you invested $100k for 40 years of Republican administrations you had $126k at the end, if you invested $100k for 40 years of Democrat administrations you had $3.9M at the end) Republican presidents added 2.5 times more to the national debt than Democratic president. The two times the economy steered into the ditch (Great Depression and Great Recession) were during Republican, laissez faire administrations. People say it all the time but this time it's true. The facts in the book They're Not Even Close are what the rich and powerful don't want you to know.

I previously wrote a review on this book and gave it a 3. However, at the time, I was ill, and frankly, cranky. I decided to re-read because I felt the subject facinating, and knew I should have been reading something of a lighter nature. I'm glad with my decision. With a clear head, I was able to get through and absorb the content without any difficulty.
I believe the statistical information to be factual, and the conclusion to be spot on. I've recommended this book to my friends and followers on Facebook and to challenge my conservative friends to read and discuss with me. Obviously an incredible amount of research went into this work, and just may be persuasive enough to convert the 'faithful'.

Zuesse does a great job sequencing his case. He uses irrefutable statistics and even takes time to answer the "yeah ,
but" comments sure to follow. The numbers are what they are and Zuesse makes sense of them. Republicans will not want to read the truth. Democrats need these facts in hand.

Well written, well presented case for the systematic pillaging of the American middle class by the 1%. You'll be enraged, as well you should.

The material in this book is very important. I had discovered several of the same elements and tried to make it available to Democrat candidates prior to the last election, so I can vouch for the veracity. I have taken away 2 stars because of the polemic tone of the book. The author 's style is certain to turn off the very people he needs to persuade. I hope the Democrat party will take the material and run with it aggressively, but without the polemics. Unfortunately the Dems seem to be unable to toot their own horn effectively and thus leave the Reps to create the narrative, regardless of veracity.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you want or need facts and figures, this is the book for you. It's so dry that no opponent will listen to you for more than 3 minutes, if that. But used judiciously, like spices, these facts are very effective, as there is NO counter-argument. Totally avoids any joyously passionate arguing based on nothing more than Fox so-called "news" and GOP-framed & biased pundital opinions. Combine this info with Mike Lofgren's "The Party's Over" and Thomas Franks' "The Wrecking Crew", and the NeoCons would be outta there - except for the oft-forgotten fact that they still hold the keys to the hackable electronic voting and vote-counting machines - the REAL coup of 9-11.

The data is well presented early on in the book, and is quite convincing. The tone gets a little strident as the book progresses; a little much for even this staunch democrat.

Gets a bit strident further into the book, but the data supporting the premise is presented early and clearly.
