About the book:

An unflinching critical analysis of government is contained in this follow-up of Higgs's bestseller Crisis and Leviathan, which distills complex economic and political issues for the layperson. Combining an economists analytical scrutiny with an historians respect for empirical evidence, the book attacks the data on which governments base their economic management and their responses to an ongoing stream of crises. Among the topics discussed are domestic economic busts, foreign wars, welfare programs, the arts of political leadership, the intrusive efforts of governments to protect people from themselves, and the mismanagement of the economy. Though focused on U.S. government actions, revealing comparisons with similar government actions abroad and in China, Japan, and Western Europe are also made.
