From the Publisher
"The rise of equalitarian ideology has driven Americans to steal from one another. Browning explains that certain kinds of equality have been a cherished value in America. Equality under the law and, within reason, equality of opportunity is consistent with a free society. Equality of results is an anathema to a free society and within it lie the seeds of tyranny."
"A collection of unique, but financially sound ideas for America, Stealing From Each Other is a must for community library economics and social issues collections."
Midwest Book Review/Internet Bookwatch
"Browning (economics, Texas A&M Univ.) is unafraid of reaching definite conclusions on a whole host of contested issues in the general areas of income distribution and redistribution…Browning supports his arguments with empirical research. This work, which is accessible to a wide audience, is likely to provoke debate on this important, controversial topic. Recommended. All readership levels."
"Browning's criticism of the minimum wage as a job destroyer is right on target. […] I must also commend Browning for not making his book exclusively about the economics of redistribution. He also questions its morality. […] It may be politically impossible to escape from the quicksand of the redistributive state, but Professor Browning has made it clear that everyone would benefit if we could do so – everyone except for the interest groups that have a stake in maintaining the status quo."
