Over the past twenty years, the Republican party has carried out a systematic program of reducing taxes for the rich while sapping social programs and raising the tax burden on the poor and middle class. Jonathan Chait looks at supply-side economics, the main tenet of Republicans, and points out that it is not supported by any economists and that its partisans have lied, cheated, and tricked people to sell this "wingnuttery" as policy. Narrator David Drummond gives a fair and balanced reading, allowing listeners to grasp the extent of Republican trickery without losing interest or becoming overwhelmed by the depressing truth. His dispassionate delivery is ideal for a book like this, which covers so much ground in great detail. K.M. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2008]
