    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"
    "An eye opening book"
    Overall

    A clear and direct book that points out flaws in conservative policy and suggests possible alternatives. This book addresses issues such as protectionism for certain professions, unnecessarily high CEO pay, medical insurance, language tricks used by conservatives to promote their agenda (e.g. "free trade" agreements such as NAFTA and CAFTA are not designed to promote free trade), and many others. Assertions made in the book as supported by a large number of studies noted in the reference section. The book (including figures and references) is also available for (free) on-line reading at the book's website: http://www.conservativenannystate.com/

    This is a "must read" book for anyone who wants to understand the deeply rooted reason for many of the current political and economic problems.
