About this product
- DescriptionMany Americans struggling to come to grips with the ecomic crisis have compared the current situation to the Great Depression of the 1930s. Strangely, they have t thought to make a comparison closer in time: to the ruius 'stagflation' of the late 1970s. But w, in the riveting and genuinely groundbreaking book Ecoclasts , historian Brian Domitrovic reminds us that the greatest and most consequential of the twentieth century's ecomic counterrevolutions emerged in response to the 1970s crisis: supply-side ecomics. In a pulsing narrative, Domitrovic tells the incredible story of the ecomists, intellectuals, journalists, and policy wonks who showed America how to get out of the 1970s funk and who ushered in an unprecedented quarter-century run of growth and expansive entrepreneurial opportunity. Based on the author's years of archival research, Ecoclasts explodes numerous myths about supply-side ecomics, which flew in the face of the dominant ecomic thinking of the time and is frequently disparaged even today. Supply-side ecomics succeeded, Domitrovic shows, because it restrained the two great means of governmental intervention in the ecomy, the income tax and the Federal Reserve. Ecoclasts is a masterful narrative history in the tradition of Amity Shlaes' The Forgotten Man and John Steele Gordon's An Empire of Wealth . It is also impeccably timely: this is a story we must kw if we are to understand the foundation of America's prosperity - a foundation that is w under increasing attack.
