Praise

Ellen Frank has put her finger on a serious problem: the deliberate use of economic jargon to confuse and mislead. In The Raw Deal she shows how concepts such as inflation, deficits, saving and productivity have come to serve as weapons of mass distraction, obstructing debate over vital concerns such as full employment and high wages. This lucid, accessible book is a great corrective; everyone should read it.–James K. Galbraith, author of Created Unequal: The Crisis in American Pay

“Ellen Frank is a dangerous character: a serious economist who writes clearly and cares about social justice. The Raw Deal is an engaging and passionate attack on the right-wing nostrums that have passed for economic wisdom in the U.S. over the past generation.”–Robert Pollin, author of Contours of Descent: U.S. Economic Fractures and the Landscape of Global Austerity and codirector of the Political Economy Research Institure (PERI) at the University of Massachusetts Amherst
