Hillary Clinton’s Village is unlike any other book about Hillary Clinton, because it’s not about Hillary Clinton. It’s about her social policies. There is not a whiff of scandal in this book and it casts no aspersions on Mrs. Clinton’s character. It assumes that she is well-intentioned, but ultimately finds that her well-intentioned policies are largely ineffective, and sometimes downright detrimental to the people they were intended to help. Think of Hillary Clinton’s Village as “debate prep for the 2016 election.” Candidates for the House, the Senate, and the Presidency will all have to be prepared to answer one question: Does Big Government Work? In her 1996 book It Takes a Village, Mrs. Clinton advocated thirty-seven federal government programs that she claims will solve the problems previously addressed by our local institutions, or by our families. Thirty-five of them did not. Some federal government programs do work, but most of them usually fall short, or fail outright. We can fix our failures if we understand how they differ from our successes. In Hillary Clinton’s Village, Dr. Michael Stumborg identifies how they differ, and why successful local programs “fail-to-scale” to the federal level. He combines insightful analyses of both successful and failed federal programs, to include Mrs. Clinton’s favorites, with personal anecdotes, current events, and observations from philosophers as varied as Saul Alinsky and Jesus Christ, to show how Big Government programs are destined to fail if we continue to ignore why they fail-to-scale. Hillary Clinton’s Village is a must read if you want to win the debate about the role of Big Government in American family life.
