The book argues that US government policy from the 1960s-70s explains why barely anything is made in the USA anymore, showing how one president after another (from both parties) let economic ignorance and "free-market" ideology set policies that sold off US workers and consumers for the benefit of finance and diplomats. It helps if you know some basic economics, but you learn much more. The payoff is enormous because the same issues are still being debated today, with just as much ignorance.
this book is just a string of NYT headlines masquerading as history-- basically no analysis.
