Former Congressman, architect of the Reagan White House’s plan to slash taxes and government excess, and a businessman with decades of experience on Wall Street and in corporate boardrooms, David Stockman “forcefully conveys enormous amounts of knowledge” (Kirkus Reviews) about America’s economic policies and pitfalls. The Triumph of Politics: Why the Reagan Revolution Failed, a bestselling memoir of his time in the early 1980s as Director of the Office of Management and Budget, is “a valuable document of the American political condition” (New York Times). In his new book, Stockman “produces a persuasive and deeply relevant indictment of a system dangerously akilter” (Washington Post) in his evisceration of the left-and right-wing narratives concerning our recent financial crisis and economic dysfunction.
