Summary
A leading economist surveys eighty years of American history to illuminate how efforts to balance economic inequality have been set back since the 1970s, in a critical analysis that cites the challenges being faced by today's middle class and calls for new perspectives about American social policy. Simultaneous.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: America emerged from Franklin Roosevelt’s 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 Deal’s achievements.

Now, the tide may be turning–and in The Conscience of a Liberal Paul Krugman, the world’s 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.
