Batra takes on the latest economic ideas of Bill Clinton, Newt Gingrich, Bob Dole, Dick Armey, Jack Kemp, Steve Forbes and others. Caught up in the fever of election year rhetoric, this group offers the American public a wide range of ideas meant to address the economic concerns of the day. Batra tackles their ideas one by one, arguing that they claim no historical backing are often based on flimsy logic, and not only won't solve the problem but might make it worse. He charts the drastic effects of NAFTA on wage decline and job loss, shows how imposing higher taxes on the wealthy will stimulate not stifle the economy and reveals why the flat tax will not work.
