About the Book
Unions call for laws to restrict plant closings. Businessmen want subsidies and restrictions on their international competitors. Politicians and scholars call for a national industrial policy. What all these groups have in common, says economist Richard McKenzie, is that they would give government more control over our system — and we would all pay the price. Wide-ranging in its economic analysis and empirical data, this book is must reading for all those interested in the debate over America’s economic future.
