America emerged from Franklin Roosevelts New Deal with strong democratic values and broadly shared prosperity. But for the past thirty years American politics has been dominated by a conservative movement determined to undermine the New Deals achievements.
Now, the tide may be turningand in The Conscience of a Liberal Paul Krugman, the worlds most widely read economist and one of its most influential political commentators, charts the way to reform.
Krugman ranges over a century of history and shows that neither the American middle-class nor the baby boomers grew up in the increasingly oligarchic nation we have become over the past generation evolved naturally: both were created, to a large extent, by government policies guided by organized political movements.
The Conscience of a Liberal promises to reshape public debate about American social policy and become a touchstone work for an entire generation.
