Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Are Americans better off today than they were before Barack Obama was elected to office? Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist and economist John Lott don't think so, and in Debacle: Obama's War on Jobs and Growth and What We Can Do Now to Regain Our Future, they argue that huge increases in government spending, mounting debt, massive new regulations, and higher effective marginal income taxes are seriously hurting the country.

Exploring the ways in which Obama's economic policies have contributed to the high unemployment rate, slowed economic growth, produced dramatically higher national debt, and damaged the housing market, Norquist and Lott contend that Obama's views on spending, taxes, and regulation have worked to harm—rather than help—our recovery from the so-called "Great Recession."

Arguing that the Obama administration used the financial crisis more as an opportunity "to do big things" than to solve the country's economic problems, the book examines the players involved in the meltdown, Obama's failed attempts to put the country back on track, and much more. Rejecting the President's use of Keynesian economics as a way of giving money to wealthy political supporters rather than as a legitimate way of understanding how the economy operates, Norquist and Lott offer a fresh perspective.

The cost of Obama's policies have greatly outweighed the benefits, and Norquist and Lott have solutions for getting the country back on track. Offering a comprehensive 12-step plan that covers everything from reforming the federal tax code to reducing industry regulation, Debacle outlines a clear path to putting America back in pole position.

From the Back Cover

Praise for DEBACLE

"Debacle will end the claims of Paul Krugman and his ilk that poor, put-upon Obama did the best anyone could do with a recession he inherited. To the contrary, Lott and Norquist convincingly demonstrate that Obama took specific actions that made the recession much worse. A lot of Democrats got wealthy under Obama, but Obama's Democrats-get-rich-quick policies destroyed millions of jobs and left Americans with a massive debt hangover. Every American with a bank account should read this book."
Ann Coulter, best-selling author and syndicated columnist

"Lott and Norquist have penned a persuasive indictment of President Obama's economic record.¿ Jammed with facts and built on a mountain of carefully catalogued evidence, this is a potent resource for anyone who wants to help replace Mr. Obama in the Oval Office."
Karl Rove, former Deputy Chief of Staff and Senior Advisor to President George W. Bush

"This is the book that everyone concerned about the future of America must read. Norquist and Lott serve up a depressing but sobering picture of today's economy along with a roadmap of solutions to move the country forward."
Haley Barbour, former Governor of Mississippi

"President Obama's economic policy has been catastrophic for liberty, enterprise, and the American dream—the very archetype of what not to do to end recession. Debacle documents how this happened and why, with outstanding research, facts, and clear thinking. Reading this book is like digging through the rubble of a man-made disaster: It is painful but necessary for going forward to restore prosperity and opportunity."
Jeffrey Tucker, executive editor, Laissez-Faire Books
