Searing insights into neoclassical economics (the academic standard),past conservative economic policies, and liberal acquiesence to the conservative mantra of free markets. This book is a must (so are all good commentaries)even for those that profess ignorance of economics in companionship with McCain. If you want to know why the U. S. is terribly awry and needs attention and sweat and great effort to come about to some semblance of normalcy but you didn't have the metaphors or knowledge to tackle the contortions of the past and present, read this even if you are not an economist. This is about the enslavement of our government to the will of the wealthy and the corporations and how and what can be done. Most who pay attention know this, but do they understand it quite as well as elucidated by this great economist?
An long ago graduate in economics,and, institutional economist from, U. of Texas,Austin
