This highly readable book by a renowned economist, Wall Street Journal editor, and Assistant Secretary of the United States Treasury is a significant challenge to economic theory as well as media interpretations of the current twenty-first-century economic crisis. The 1% have orchestrated an economic and political transition. US companies undermined the growth of disposable income, the cornerstone of the US economy, by offshoring manufacturing and skilled service employment, leaving the majority of the population in debt. Deregulation was used to concentrate profits and capital in fewer hands and financial institutions in “too large to fail” companies, freeing financial corporations from market discipline and pressuring taxpayers in the United States and Europe to cover banker losses. The degradation of the environment has intensified as economists fail to count the depletion of natural resources as an expense, and companies place the cost of their operations on the environment and third parties that do not share in the gain. For those who want to grasp the errors that are taking the West to its knees, this is the book to read.

Dr. paul craig roberts discusses the decline of us economy

The first edition of this landmark book, published in 1971, described the fatal flaws in Marxist ideology that would contribute to the Soviet economy’s collapse. Paul Craig Roberts explores how fact triumphed over Marxist ideology in this revised edition, as well as the consequences for Russia and Eastern Europe’s future. Professional Sovietologists were outraged when Roberts declared in 1971 that the USSR and its East Bloc allies’ economies were doomed because their planned economies were anything but planned. Roberts expands on his original ideas in this book, demonstrating the fatal flaws of Marxist economies, ranging from resource misallocation to ersatz capitalistic ideals grafted onto a structure that demands productivity without regard for profit. If the economies of the nations emerging from the fall of the Soviet Union are to become sustainable, Roberts argues that they must understand the profound truths in this novel.
