Kuttner’s New Book, A Review

Chris Farrell Nov 16, 2007

I have a book review of Robert Kuttner’s new book, “The Squandering of America: How the Failure of Our Politics Undermines Our Prosperity.” Here’s my bottom line: “Kuttner has written a passionate broadside for restoring widespread prosperity to the middle class and reviving a dispirited democracy. That his argument isn’t completely convincing doesn’t mean his ideas aren’t worth grappling with during the coming campaign for the White House.”
