If you think the current administration is mismanaging the economy straight towards disaster, you're not alone: so do two top economists from both sides of the political aisle. In Seeds of Destruction, former Bush chief White House economist R. Glenn Hubbard and well-known CNBC commentator Peter Navarro explain why current economic policy is a catastrophic failure. Then, they offer a comprehensive, bipartisan blueprint for reversing the decline of America's currency, manufacturing base, and standard of living - setting the stage for the epic policy debates that will precede the 2010 elections. Hubbard and Navarro begin with a checklist of what it takes to be a prosperous, democratic nation - and show why Obama's policies (some of Bush's also) fail on every level. They explain why the activist Federal Reserve and Obama fiscal stimulus policies are doing far more harm than good...why we must restore the U.S. manufacturing base, whatever China says about to transform tax policy into an engine of growth and to apply the tough love needed to save Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid...why America must resign the job of world market-based solutions can finally deliver real energy to reform our antique financial regulatory system without imposing heavy-handed rules that cause even more trouble.
