The debt hawks are to economics as the creationists are to biology.
Let me tell you about a wonderful book. It’s short, simple and educational. It’s written in an easy, interesting style. It’s sure to be controversial. You can read it in an hour, and you never will forget it.
The title is Seven Deadly Frauds of Economic Policy, by Warren Mosler. Frankly, I’m not too crazy about the title. Sounds a bit dull. But I promise you, the title is the only dull part of this terrific book, that reads more like a novel than a text.
Yes, its an economics book, but not like most economics books. No formulas. No economics jargon. Just straightforward English, rational discussions that clear up some of the biggest, counter-intuitive mysteries about our economy. Learn how to cure the recession, how to save Social Security and Medicare, how to pay for universal health care, how to end federal debt problems — all kinds of good stuff.
