    (87)

    David Stockman was the architect of the Reagan Revolution that was meant to restore sound money principles to the U.S. government. It failed, derailed by politics, special interests, welfare, and warfare. Stockman describes how the working of free markets and democracy has long been under threat in America and provides a surprising, nonpartisan catalog of the corrupters and defenders. His analysis shows how both liberal and neoconservative interference in markets has proved damaging and often dangerous.

    What would have made The Great Deformation better?

    I had watched Mr. Stockman several times on tv - internet prior to his book and he talked about various problems in the economy in an intellgent manner, but this book is dreadful. He is all over the place - rambling from one thing to another with very little real objective detail. He makes grand and unsuppported statements. After 45 minutes I could not listen to anymore. Disappointing- certainly no "Big Short" (Martin Lewis). If you like Glenn Beck then "Deformation" is for you.


    What was most disappointing about David Stockman’s story?

    Poorly written - Poorly Presented - Poorly organized


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    This book would challenge any narrator


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Great Deformation?

    The beginning - possibly the middle - most likely the end.
