About the book:

In Tyranny of the Status Quo, Milton and Rose Friedman describe a remarkable political phenomenon: the uniform tendency in government to reverse the decleared policies of leaders whether left or right. In the first six to nine months following their election, Reagan, Thatcher, Mitterand, too, initiated big changes. Soon, each was frustrated by the "Iron Triangle" which preserves the status quo. In the triangle's corners are the direct beneficiaries of laws, the bureaucrats who thrive on them, the politicians who seek votes.
