    America emerged from Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal with strong democratic values and broadly shared prosperity. But for the past 30 years, American politics has been dominated by a conservative movement determined to undermine the New Deal's achievements. Now, the tide may be turning, and in The Conscience of a Liberal Paul Krugman, the world's most widely read economist and one of its most influential political commentators, charts the way to reform.

    Overall

    I must say I'm having a hard time deciding whether or not to even bother finishing this book. Krugman is petulant, and uses data (whether or not it is reliable data) toward his own pre-conceived conclusions. There are many, many sections where he contradicts himself, or otherwise ignores facts that don't fit what he's trying to accomplish.

    Through past works, I've come to know Krugman as a talented economist. He bastardizes his expertise with this liberal feel-good book. Now that Obama is trying to repeat most of what Krugman advocates, we'll see if he owns up to the coming failures.
