A former economic advisor to President Reagan offers a blueprint for dealing with America's economic malaise, with specific emphasis on cutting spending and improving competitiveness and the tax system

From Publishers Weekly:

Weidenbaum, former chairman of President Reagan's Council of Economic Advisors, joins the chorus of economists who urgently warn that the twin deficitsbudget and tradeare leading the U.S. toward economic stagnation, if not disaster. Unlike many of his colleagues, however, he argues forcefully that less government, not more, is needed to solve America's economic problems. Weidenbaum starkly outlines the dangers posed by protectionism, over-regulation and so-called "industrial policy," insisting that Congress must restrain itself from funding every politically expedient government program. Although his calls for more voter concern over the deficit seem a bit naive, he concludes that there is still time, if we take firm action, to repair the damage to our economy and prevent a reduction in our living standards. To that end, he outlines a national agenda on how to reduce the trade and budget deficits and how to implement tax, welfare and regulatory reform. A thor ough analysis of the problems confronting the U.S. economy.

From Library Journal:

This is not just another book about Reaganomics. Those years are seen as an interregnum. Economic problems will now begin to reassert themselves, contends Weidenbaum, who covers the standard topics but avoids the stereotypical analysis of many chroniclers of the Reagan legacy. This analysis provides innovative discussion of corporate takeovers and bailouts, poverty, deregulation, and tax reform. The discussion of military spending reform is especially relevant today. Whether or not one agrees with Weidenbaum, one will appreciate his thoughtfulness in addressing the issues with clarity and concern and not cant. Highly recommended. Richard C.
