    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"
    "A basic understanding of macro economics at best"
    Overall

    The person who wrote this book obviously has little to no understand of economics beyond a high school level. Their attempts --while admirable-- to reframe the discussion of economics in this country rapidly devolves into prepackaged political diatribes instead of an examination of the data. In fact, I will be so bold as to say that you will find more facts and fewer assumptions in a Michael Moore movie than you in this title. To make matters worse the reader Sandra Swafford has more in common with the kindle book reader than I would like. I understand it is free, but there is no excuse for how bad this title is.
