The Conservative Nanny State

"The Conservative Nanny State" is a book by the economist Dean Baker that has been highly influential in the way I have viewed economic policy. The book can be bought, or read for free online here, if you don't mind reading it from a computer. If you are not into reading a book at the moment, try and find some time to watch this video I just found of Dean Baker talking about the book in Charleston, West Virginia. The way he talks about economics is fresh and exciting, especially since it departs from all the vapid platitudes we usually hear in the media and from our government. Enjoy!
