The Great Deformation: The Corruption of Capitalism in America
All Library locations will close at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 18 for a staff development event.
David Stockman was the architect of the Reagan Revolution meant to restore sound money principles to the U.S. government, but the movement was derailed by politics, special interests, welfare, and warfare. Now he offers a fierce indictment of the American governmental-economic complex, reveals how the workings of free markets and democracy has long been under threat in America, and exposes a surprisingly nonpartisan catalog of corrupters and defenders.
A private equity investor, Stockman is a former member of the U.S. House of Representatives and served as director of the Office of Management and Budget in the Reagan White House. He is the author of The Triumph of Politics: Why the Reagan Revolution Failed.
