New Book: "Back from Serfdom: Restoring American Prosperity with a Pro-Market New Deal"
New book now available from Amazon "Back from Serfdom: Restoring American Prosperity with a Pro-Market New Deal," by Robert Dell (and just a little help from Mark J. Perry), here's a description: "Government is essential to our well-being. But most government expansion since the Coolidge era has been shown to be politically motivated and economically counterproductive. Even a large number of progressive economists find no sound economic or moral basis for many important federal policies and would drastically restructure the ones whose ends they favor. U.S. citizens, including conservatives, do not appreciate the nature and extent of government failure or the toll it imposes on the general prosperity.Combining business, economics, history and politics, Back from Serfdom aims to empower citizens in their civic and political discourse by deepening their understanding of the most problematic government policies. A modern antithesis to A New Deal, the popular 1932 polemic that served as a public blueprint for government growth under the Roosevelt Administration, this book argues for market-based banking, health care, federal downsizing and tax reforms by appealing to classical liberal, egalitarian and pragmatic concerns."
