The Conservative Nanny State

by Dean Baker

I can only agree with the poster before me. Please do read Hayek (only do so in addition to the book by Baker). And if you do, maybe you should prefer \\\\\\\"The Constitution of Liberty\\\\\\\". Hayek is so illuminating because he probably was the last of the Neoliberals who described in open words, that \\\\\\\"free\\\\\\\" markets not only always work for the benefit of the rich, but are also intended to do so by there advocates. Of course Hayek wouldn\\\\\\\'t have dreamed about his followers, who in America prefer to refer to themselves as Conservatives instead of Neoliberals, to depend upon the hated state so much to actually achieve their \\\\\\\"free\\\\\\\" market ideology.
About the book in question (since this is a review after all): Read it, though it is not free of economic misconceptions, it definitely puts the finger into the right place and that is, incidentally, where it hurts.
