Descriptions du produit

A hard-headed liberal economist, Alan Blinder clearly shows how economic policy is made in America and how good policies often make bad politics. He discusses liberal-conservative divisiveness and shows how it often prevents sound economic advice from being heeded. Blinder offers his own nonpartisan vision for the future of our economic society and challenges law-makers--Democrats and Republicans--to do better.

HASH(0x99840f54) étoiles sur 5 My favorite book on economic policy 13 mars 1998
Par Arnold Kling - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
If I were to teach an introductory economics course, this would be my first choice for a supplemental reading. Blinder does a terrific job of explaining the unique perspective that economists have on economic policy. I recommend this book frequently in conversations with people.

HASH(0x99840fa8) étoiles sur 5 A good Keynesian analysis 20 mai 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Blinder renders a balanced analysis of governmental policy, criticizing Democrats and Republicans equally. I might even go as far as to say that he is objective. However, his policy prescriptions are very left-leaning. The reader will see clearly that Blinder makes many normative assumptions about the goal of policy and that those assumptions dictate unambiguously the liberal ends to which our resources and tax dollars should be directed. He gives a great explanation of how the deficit grew out of the Reagan administration's blunders, and I may even recommend this book for that alone. Overall, it is a good econ book for the initiated readers and everybody else, as it doesn't treat you like a dupe. Definitely preferable to The Armchair Economist, but you should balance your diet with a reading of Capitalism and Freedom. LEWIS GAINOR MIZZOU ECON

HASH(0x99f52198) étoiles sur 5 Great primer on economics 28 juillet 2010
Par R. Harris - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Although it is out of print, it's well worth searching for a used copy, Although it is pretty dated in its discussion of tax reform, the rest of the book is a great introduction to economists' views on public policy for those who really don't want to read a lot of economic theory. The chapters on the environment and international trade are particularly good.

HASH(0x99f5209c) étoiles sur 5 eye-opening economic perspective 23 juillet 1998
Par Jamie J. Rodriguez(jjr2@acpub.duke.edu) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Blinder will have you sitting beside yourself as he challenges the public's vastly preconceived notions of the economic world. One chapter in particular draws my attention, "Who Will Protect Us From Protectionism." Although there are minor flaws in his analysis, due to recent revelations in economic free trade policy, Blinder exercises a practicality that wonderfully illustrates the need to revamp our protectionist policy. This book is a must read if you are still mislead by the notion that protectionism levels the playing field and increases American welfare.

HASH(0x99f527ec) étoiles sur 5 A powerful yet unintended message! 4 mai 2003
Par Hussein M. H. Allam - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Mr. Blinder does a great job of setting forth sound economic policies that should be adopted by any nation. His chapter on protecting the environment was particularly enlightening. However, I disagree with him on one very specific issue:
- On page 63, Mr. Blinder argues that employees should get a share of a company's net income rather than a fixed wage rate. This is no less than a recipe for disaster. How do you define a company's net income? Upper management would spend most of its time devising ways to understate their results while employees would make a great effort to dispute the company's income statement. In the end the holy grail of economic efficiency would be lost as both parties squabble endlessly. Just look how easily Enron cooked its books.
What really struck me as fantastic was Mr. Blinder's brilliant if unintentional critique of American style democracy. He did this by showing how often the American political process produces mediocre results that fly in the face of simple economics. He turns the spotlight on the damaging effects of lobbying by powerful groups and their vested interests. This was particularly apparent in his chapter on tax reform.
I recommend this title to anyone who is interested in setting society on the road to prosperity. I would also recommend it to anyone interested in knowing just how harmful the US's corrupt brand of democracy is. Perhaps this book's greatest contribution lies in raising the following question:
How can a system be devised that safeguards the ideals of democrarcy and freedom without compromising economic efficiency and equity?
