Liberals and conservatives will never agree on all things. In his new book, Laurence Seidman does not pretend otherwise. Instead, Seidman identifies several key issues on which policy agreement might be possible. Using evidence of successful government actions such as the earned income tax credit (E.I.T.C.), which was conceived as a work bonus by conservatives and was sufficiently funded by liberals, Pouring Liberal Wine into Conservative Bottles is a critical, and hopeful, examination of public policy.

Unlike some liberals, Larry Seidman knows that incentives matter. Unlike some conservatives, he wants a strong social safety net. This important and eminently readable book describes major policy initiatives that are tough-minded enough to appeal to Hannity, yet humane enough to appeal to Colmes. (Robert Frank, Henrietta Johnson Louis Professor of Management and Professor of Economics, Cornell University)
Gridlock. Blame game. Whatever the political causes for our current policy malaise, Seidman's clear-headed economic analyses and affordable policy prescriptions provide the starting points for replacing current grandstanding with new and productive grand coalitions for reform. (Robert Inman, Richard K. Mellon Professor of Finance and Economics, Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania)
Larry Seidman provides hope that there can be a productive meeting of the minds across the political spectrum. This compelling new book demonstrates the potential for innovative tax policies to achieve liberal purposes while meeting conservatives' concerns. (Philip Cook, ITT / Sanford Professor of Public Policy and Economics, Duke University)
There just might be a middle ground left in American economic policy. If so, Larry Seidman may have found it. His book shows how much more sensible of economic policy could be. (Alan Blinder, Gordon S. Rentschler Memorial Professor of Economics, Princeton University)
