Review:

Among the God-given liberties of Americans is the right to blast governmental bureaucracy. It is now in particular vogue to blame a bloated government for most national problems. But there is another bureaucracy equally as damaging or worse, argues David M. Gordon, a professor at the New York School for Social Research in New York, who died in March at age 51. He contends that a huge inefficient bureaucracy of corporate bosses hoards a disproportionate share of the national income at the expense of the people who are doing the real work and, in turn, leads to conflict and tension. Gordon provides a wealth of statistical evidence to support this theory.

About the Author:

David M. Gordon is Dorothy H. Hirshon Professor of Economics and Director of the Center for Economic Policy Analysis at the New School for Social Research. He is the author, with Samuel Bowles and Thomas Weisskopf, of After the Waste Land: A Democratic Economics for the Year 2000 and Beyond the Waste Land: A Democratic Alternative to Economic Decline. He lives in New York City.
