Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
[1987 Hardcover]: Maybe I'm not the Reviewer to Review this: never took Economics or Poly Sci. My non-snarky implication is that without some grounding in these fundamentals the writing can get a tad arid. But hang in there. Grab a club soda.

With all the flap about Bain Capital in light of a Presidential campaign in 2012, we should look back to the Reagan era for that "state of mind". And is that state the one to go back to in 2013? Let the Free market run Free again? How free?

I have not read this work cover to cover - may not happen - but feel confident that my review is fair and square. I'm gonna keep this Keeper, as it is home-friendly, and pool and sandwich-place friendly. Sometimes you might blurt out, Wow! And actually look cool!

Go back to just before the S & L meltdown and see what Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Merrill-Lynch, others looked like when they used to get haircuts...and give *us* a trimmin'.
