Neoconomy: George Bush's Revolutionary Gamble with America's Future

Overview

Daniel Altman explains the intellectual origins of the neoconomy, how the White House passed it off as a cure for the stagnation and uncertainty plaguing the nation, how George W. Bush locked the nation onto his chosen path incurring huge risks while casting the nation deeper into debt; and finally, how the whole gamble might play out: as the neoconomists dream, or the breadwinner's nightmare.

Editorial Reviews

Tom Gallagher
Those who like their politics a la Michael Moore or Rush Limbaugh will not get their dose of vitriol from this book. Altman bases his arguments on merits, not motives. He accepts the neoconomists' goal of increasing the growth rate of the economy by stimulating saving and applies basic economic analysis to their arguments … Altman writes for non-economists, so he avoids jargon that makes economic policy debates inaccessible to many voters.
— The Washington Post
