Excellent Primer On Our Nation Debt,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Hamilton's Blessing: The Extraordinary Life and Times of Our National Debt: Revised Edition (Paperback)
Gordon succintly traces how and why the national debt has reached $13,049,417,436,809.36 (I just checked a minute ago. For those of you reading this review later, it increases on average $4.06 billion a day). No matter what your political or economic bias, reading this book will give you the background to understand the policy debates and choices to come.
As for readability, this is neither an ecomonics treatise or a political screed. If you are comfortable reading an op ed piece in New York Times, Washington Post, or Wall Street Journal, you will be comfortable reading this book.
