Overview

Which U.S. Presidents have been the best and worst economic stewards for our nation, the business community, and the average American family?  Which political party has demonstrated superior economic performance while serving in the White House? Which economic principles have led to each President’s success or failure?  What have our elected officials and the voters learned from these results?  Bulls, Bears, and the Ballot Box will examine these and many other questions.  The answers will surprise you.

The authors review 80 years of our nation’s economic history from the Great Depression and Herbert Hoover, to the Great Recession and George W. Bush; a time period in which the Democratic and Republican Parties occupied the Oval Office for precisely 40 years each.  This is where the similarity ends.  The authors explore this unique comparative opportunity by using historical data, as well as statistical analysis, to objectively score the Presidents and the political parties under their customized ranking system.  Using their Presidential Rules for Economic Success (PRES Rules) they explain the economic stumbles and triumphs posted by these 13 presidents as CEO’s of the American economy.


Bulls, Bears, and the Ballot Box
cuts through all of the hyperbole and mantra.  It is a “must read” for all voters - independents, liberals and conservatives alike.  This book may change your vote in 2012; it will certainly challenge your thinking and mainstream political beliefs.
 

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Don't just buy a single copy of this book. Buy dozens, send them to everyone you know, and do it now! In a clear, concise, and accessible style, Bob Deitrick and Lew Goldfarb have written a book that, finally, lets the facts speak for themselves. In doing so, they have turned a whole lot of what stands for conventional wisdom on its head . Necessary reading before family gatherings, high school reunions, elections, or turning on Fox News...wherever and whenever the discussion is likely to turn to politics. Deitrick and Goldfarb are not politicians and they are not from the Beltway, and perhaps that's why this book contains more common sense per page than just about any other book of this sort I know of”.
