      Binyamin Appelbaum - The Economists' Hour: False Prophets, Free Markets, and the Fracture of Society

      A George Polk-award winning economic journalist now writing for The New York Times editorial page, Appelbaum is known for his ability to elucidate the complexities of federal policy. In his book he follows the rise of the professional economist from the post-World War II boom to today, showing how economists’ oversight of federal regulation and advice to cut taxes and restrain spending has curbed government, heightened the role of corporations, and led to globalization. But while economists have argued that unfettered markets are the only way to achieve steady growth, they’ve failed to deliver on the promise that all Americans would share in the benefits.
