Just as neoconservatives in the Bush administration have been seen as bringing about a revolution in American foreign policy with their "unilateral preemption," so too have a team of White House "neoconomists" been bringing about a revolution in U.S. economic policy. New York Times and Business 2.0 columnist Altman provides a brief history of that revolution for the general reader, not unsympathetically explaining how they pushed through tax cuts, what the economic rationale (or at least rationalization) is behind the plan, what parts of their agenda has yet to be enacted (such as the privatization of social security), and the possible consequences.
