About this title

Synopsis:

'Politics is a noble, but also a dirty, business. To gain election ― and retain office ― in a democratic system, politicians are frequently compelled to be dishonest. They engage in benevolent lying because obstruction by stupid voters will otherwise stop them advancing the national interest as they see it.' So claims the author of this eye-opening book, which straddles politics, philosophy, morality and economics. Alex Rubner’s own background as an economist advising policy-makers gives authority to his words and a personal dimension to his illustrations.

Review:

"A rather good new book."

(Ron Liddle Times Online)

"Rubner has developed a much more measured and thought-provoking thesis. Helping the people face up to the challenges of the future without Rubner's benevolent lying will be a worthy but difficult task."

(David Worsley Right Now!)
