Bowyer's book is a sorely needed dose of simple economic truth that things aren't as bad as the media says. -- Donald Luskin, National Review Online Financial
People complain about information overload. The trick is to know what data to understand. Bowyer can help you do this. -- Brian S. Wesbury, Chief Economist for Griffin, Kubik, Stephens & Thompson, Inc.
Readers will have to re examine their own assumptions to contend with Bowyers mind-cleaning exercise. -- Reuven Brenner, Faculty of Management, McGill University, and author of The Force of Finance
Those who wish to debate economic policy on the basis of facts rather than opinion will find this book indispensable. -- Richard W. Rahn, Chairman of Novecon Financial and a senior fellow at the Discovery Institute
From the Publisher
Jerry Bowyer's fascinating book is endorsed by Steve Forbes, with a foreword by Larry Kudlow of CNBC. Forbes says, "Timely book of incisive data, enriched insights about our getting-better economy." If you like books by conservative authors Ann Coulter, Michael Savage, Mona Cheran, and Gary Aldrich, you'll love Jerry Bowyer.

Bowyer and Kudlow, however, would have us ignore all of this and try to convince us that Bush's policies, which have failed to yield solid results by any standard economic measures, have actually already produced a boom. They use very convoluted and hard-to-follow arguments, with very little reflection of fact, to try to convince the reader that Bush is an economic genius.
As a serious study of current political economy, this book is a joke. As an example of the total disconnection of conservatives with basic human reality, however, it is a tour de force.
It works something like this: Bush destroys the economy, people lose their jobs, their homes, their savings, their health insurance and then they either die from some malady or they kill themselves and that's GOOD! Because then they don't have to pay any taxes anymore! And it helps the economy because that's one less person competing with you for a job at McDonalds when you used to make six figures in programming!
Man, this economy is freakin' AWESOME! I got so much affordable health care all around me, I can't even freakin' STAND IT! And manufacturing jobs? Oh dude, manufacturing jobs up the wazzoo!!!
Have you ever SEEN a better economy?! Me neither, friends. Me neither!
I rate "The Bush Boom" an A+++!
So once again the Scaife conservative pact continues to push another book that nobody wants to read out into the world. Why would they do this if nobody is going to buy it? How do the ideas from these books nobody reads get out there? After all Scaife is no fool he is expecting a return when he pays for thousands of books that will never be sold to be printed. Scaife knows these books will be reviewed in major news papers, magazines, websites, and referred to often as references on political TV shows, and right wing talk radio. So while the book may never sell, the ideas in them get pounded into our heads.
Is it class warfare? You bet, the Republicans declared it some years back. It's about time we, the 99%, start to fight back with an agenda that is good for all Americans.
I wonder what they'll do with all of the unbought copies of this book -- bleach the pages and print Coulter's next screed on it I guess.
