Summary
Robert E. Wright not only identifies the problems of our current economic conundrum but also proposes new, intriguing solutions. His entertaining and enlightening ideas take a fresh approach to public policy by finding fault with both the market and the government, and on both sides of the aisle. According to Wright, the only way to fix our FUBAR (Fouled Up Beyond All Recognition) world is to approach its problems head-on, using both sides of our brains and checking politically correct thought at the curb.--[book jacket]
