Praise for The Road to Prosperity

"With clarity, verve, and polish, Pat Toomey brilliantly propounds the principles and practical policies needed to make America—and the world—prosperous again. Ronald Reagan, Adam Smith, and Milton Friedman would vigorously applaud what Pat has put forth here."
—STEVE FORBES

"While many talking heads are tripping over each other to write the political obituary for conservatives, Pat Toomey illustrates how the limited government movement has the best policy answers for the challenges of the twenty-first century. This is a must-read book for any serious student of the limited government movement."
—DICK ARMEY, author of the Contract with America, former House Majority Leader, 1995–2003, and Chairman of FreedomWorks

"Like Ronald Reagan, Pat Toomey has found a way to breathe common sense and economic truth into public policy. Rather than allowing his political views to color his economics, Pat Toomey looks for truth first and only then does he take a political stance."
—Brian Wesbury, Chief Economist, First Trust Portfolios LP

"Anyone who cares about the future of our economy and our country should read Pat Toomey's The Road to Prosperity. If we as Americans want to return to a pro-growth and prosperous future, we will need to embrace the free-market, freedom-driven policies laid out in this book."
—CHRIS CHOCOLA, President, The Club for Growth

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This essential perception—that incentive-driven growth rather than government-sponsored redistribution is the key to real prosperity—is at the heart of former Pennsylvania congressman Patrick Toomey’s lovely little book The Road to Prosperity: How to Grow Our Economy and Revive the American Dream. It's a capitalist manifesto for everyman: clear, concise, down-to-earth and wonderfully compelling. A book to read and absorb, and to consider giving to clients." (Financial Advisor Magazine)

Meet the Author

PATRICK TOOMEY is a former president of the Club for Growth and three-term congressman from Pennsylvania, winning hard-fought elections in a Democrat-leaning district that hadn't voted for a Republican presidential candidate in over twenty years. Toomey also cofounded and cochaired a start-up bank in Pennsylvania that ranks among the healthiest banks in the nation. In Congress, Toomey distinguished himself as a national advocate for limited government, lower taxes, and personal freedom. His dedication to these beliefs earned him recognition from the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste, Americans for Tax Reform, the National Taxpayers Union, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Toomey graduated from Harvard University with a degree in political science.
