A hard-headed liberal economist, Alan Blinder clearly shows how economic policy is made in America and how good policies often make bad politics. He discusses liberal-conservative divisiveness and shows how it often prevents sound economic advice from being heeded. Blinder offers his own nonpartisan vision for the future of our economic society and challenges law-makers—Democrats and Republicans—to do better.

Alan S. Blinder is the Gordon S. Rentschler Memorial Professor of Economics at Princeton University and a regular columnist for Business Week.From Publishers Weekly:
Princeton economist and Business Week columnist Blinder passes a farewell judgment on Reagan-era economics and offers other ideas. Among them: inflation is not all bad and unemployment may not be as "acceptable" as once thought. Economics under the current administration has been a "comic opera," claims the author, with Keynesian fine-tuning, be-all monetarism, "rational expectations" as a policy determinant, and supply-side "quackery" all backing and filling between academe and the White House. Blinder opposes trade protectionism, demonstrates how hard-headed yet soft-hearted 1986 tax reform came about and favors complex economics over elementary science by advocating cumulative and putatively irreversible industrial air and water pollution-for-a-fee.
