Publisher's Summary

Ever since the Reagan era, Washington has been captured by a conservative economic agenda that has failed in every respect and that has long since lost any respect among serious economists.

Finally, highly regarded economist James Galbraith presents a full-bore attack on the bankrupt economic policies of the Republican Party - and a much needed reality check on where to go from here.

Critic Reviews

"Shows how to break the spell that conservatives have cast over the minds of liberals (and everyone else) for many years." (Joseph E. Stiglitz, 2001 Nobel Laureate in Economic Sciences)
"James Galbraith elegantly and effectively counters the economic fundamentalism that has captured public discourse in recent years, and offers a cogent guide to the real political economy. Myth-busting, far-ranging, and eye-opening." (Robert B. Reich, professor of Public Policy, University of California at Berkeley)
