Product Details


“Shackled by ignorant schools, an unwell system of healthcare, a carceral state of criminal proportions, and a morbidly obese military industrial complex, the US economy stumbles along, literally on borrowed time. Forewarned but ineptly led, Americans have hitherto chosen complacency over reform. Steve Slavin’s book may be their last chance to rescue prosperity from the clutches of economic degeneration.”
—Robert E. Wright, author of Fubarnomics and The Poverty of Slavery

“Slavin presents an impressive account of the enormous inefficiencies in the American economy. This finding belies the common assumption that free-market economies are fundamentally efficient. Although disagreement can be expected about some claims of inefficiency (as one person’s inefficiency is often another person’s job), the cumulative effect of Slavin’s book is to jolt readers into skepticism about claims of free-market efficiency and thereby provoke a national conversation about our economy so as to reduce its self-destructive tendencies.”
—Peter S. Wenz, author of Functional Inefficiency: The Unexpected Benefits of Wasting Time and Money
