FDR Goes to War: How Expanded Executive Power, Spiraling National Debt, and Restricted Civil Liberties Shaped Wartime America | [Burton W. Folsom, Anita Folson]

FDR Goes to War: How Expanded Executive Power, Spiraling National Debt, and Restricted Civil Liberties Shaped Wartime America

FDR Goes to War expands on the premise that FDR's legacy has damaged America and helped lay the groundwork for the current economic crisis.

The Folsoms continue to expose the idyllic legend of Franklin D. Roosevelt as a myth of epic proportions. Many government programs that are widely used today have their seeds in the New Deal.

Publisher's Summary

Burton Folsom's New Deal or Raw Deal? was heralded by critics across the board, and #1 New York Times bestselling author and media personality Glenn Beck called it "a must read to help understand our current fiscal problems." Now, writing with his wife Anita Folsom, a domestic policy specialist, FDR Goes to War expands on the premise that FDR's legacy has damaged America and helped lay the groundwork for the current economic crisis.

The Folsoms continue to expose the idyllic legend of Franklin D. Roosevelt as a myth of epic proportions. Many government programs that are widely used today have their seeds in the New Deal. Farm subsidies, minimum wage, and welfare, among others, all stifle economic growth - encouraging decreased productivity and exacerbating unemployment - and public ignorance of some of these policy failures has lent support for similar policies in later years. Informative, groundbreaking, and illuminating, FDR Goes to War is a must-listen!

What the Critics Say

"FDR Goes to War is a page-turning tour de force - and a scholarly one, at that - of the politics and economics of America's involvement in WWII." (Don Bordreaux, Chairman of the Department of Economics at George Mason University)

    "Very good"
    Would you listen to FDR Goes to War again? Why?

    Well researched and detailed, but an entertaining narrative as well. I never realized how white-washed the history of FDR is, and how dangerous to democracy he was.
