    In his new book, economist Dean Baker debunks the myth that conservatives favor the market over government intervention. In fact, conservatives rely on a range of "nanny state" policies that ensure the rich get richer while leaving most Americans worse off. It's time for the rules to change. Sound economic policy should harness the market in ways that produce desirable social outcomes: decent wages, good jobs, and affordable health care.

    Vladimir says: "An eye opening book"
    "Brilliant clarifification of policies"
    Overall

    This book is a serious economic policy assessment of what conservatives actually do in exact contradiction to what they say. The narrative is coherent, consistent and very clear. The book is an excellent defense against the most outrageous lies that conservatives keep telling the American people. The solutions the book proposes are very positive and necessary if we are to restore equality or genuine democracy.

    Today, encyclopedias, jetliners, operating systems, mutual funds, and many other items are being created by teams numbering in the thousands or even millions. While some leaders fear the burgeoning growth of these massive online communities, Wikinomics proves this fear is folly. Smart firms can harness collective capability and genius to spur innovation, growth, and success.

    Overall

    I found this book truly inspiring, accurate and informative. The authors have successfully given a truly updated account of the profound revolution that the open source movement is leading on the world wide web. This book provides a multidimensional coherent narrative for sharing science, business amd education. It is also a great resource for those who would like to participate in this new collaborative culture. The social character of the internet and its universal access to human knowledge,wisdom and wealth is clearly stated. The message of this book is deeply encouraging and positive. Listen to it, study it and live it!...
