Bottleneckers: Gaming the Government for Power and Private Profit

William Mellor & Dick M. Carpenter II

Bottleneckers: Gaming the Government for Power and Private Profit by William Mellor & Dick M. Carpenter IIBottlenecker (n): a person who advocates for the creation or perpetuation of government regulation, particularly an occupational license, to restrict entry into his or her occupation, thereby accruing an economic advantage without providing a benefit to consumers.

The Left, Right, and Center all hate them: powerful special interests that use government power for their own private benefit. In an era when the Left hates “fat cats” and the Right despises “crony capitalists,” now there is an artful and memorable one-word pejorative they can both get behind: bottleneckers.

A “bottlenecker” is...

Less Work for Less Pay: Why Economic Prosperity Is Beyond the Ability of Central Bankers and Federal Governments to Accelerate T

Randall N. Margo

Less Work for Less Pay: Why Economic Prosperity Is Beyond the Ability of Central Bankers and Federal Governments to Accelerate T by Randall N. MargoMarshaling an array of data, Less Work for Less Pay shows rather than tells us why economic prosperity for America and other Western nations is now beyond the ability of central bankers and federal governments to accelerate through their creative stimulus actions. Instead, these measures often serve to delay the inevitable rebalancing of labor, debt, taxes and regulatory reform that is vital for greater economic competitiveness among these nations. Multinational corporations figured this out years ago as they continue to aggressively pursue foreign markets and tax advantages in the world economy....

Fed Up: An Insider's Take on Why the Federal Reserve is Bad for America

Danielle DiMartino Booth

Fed Up: An Insider's Take on Why the Federal Reserve is Bad for America by Danielle DiMartino BoothAn insider's unflinching expose of the toxic culture within the Federal Reserve.

In the early 2000s, as a Wall Street escapee writing a financial column for the Dallas Morning News. Booth attracted attention for her bold criticism of the Fed's low interest rate policies and her cautionary warnings about the bubbly housing market. Nobody was more surprised than she when the folks at the Dallas Federal Reserve invited her aboard. Figuring she could have more of an impact on Fed policies from the inside, she accepted the call to duty and rose to be one of Dallas Fed president Richard Fisher's closest...

Citizens' Wealth: Why (and How) Sovereign Funds Should be Managed by the People for the People

Angela Cummine

Citizens' Wealth: Why (and How) Sovereign Funds Should be Managed by the People for the People by Angela CummineIn 2006, Chile teemed with protesters after finance minister Andr�s Velasco invested budget surpluses from the nation's historic copper boom in two Sovereign Wealth Funds. A year later, when prices plummeted and unemployment soared, Chile's government was able to stimulate recovery by drawing on the funds.�
State-owned investment vehicles that hold public funds in a wide range of assets, Sovereign Wealth Funds enable governments to access an unprecedented degree of wealth. Consequently, more countries are seeking to establish them. Looking at Chile, China, Australia, Singapore, and numerous...

Viking Economics: How the Scandinavians Got It Right-and How We Can, Too

George Lakey

Viking Economics: How the Scandinavians Got It Right-and How We Can, Too by George LakeyLiberals worldwide invoke Scandinavia as a promised land of equality, while most conservatives fear it as a hotbed of liberty-threatening socialism. But the left and right can usually agree on one thing: that the Nordic system is impossible to replicate elsewhere. The US and UK are too big, or too individualistic, or too . . . something.

What They Do With Your Money: How the Financial System Fails Us and How to Fix It

Stephen Davis & Jon Lukomnik & David Pitt-Watson

What They Do With Your Money: How the Financial System Fails Us and How to Fix It by Stephen Davis & Jon Lukomnik & David Pitt-WatsonEach year we pay billions in fees to those who run our financial system. The money comes from our bank accounts, our pensions, our borrowing, and often we aren't told that the money has been taken. These billions may be justified if the finance industry does a good job, but as this book shows, it too often fails us. Financial institutions regularly place their business interests first, charging for advice that does nothing to improve performance, employing short-term buying strategies that are corrosive to building long-term value, and sometimes even concealing both their practices and their...

Expand Social Security Now! How to Ensure Americans Get the Retirement They Deserve by Steven HillWhy Social Security is not only sustainable but should be substantially expanded

Social Security is bankrupting us. It??s outdated. It??s a Ponzi scheme. It??s stealing from young people. These are some of the biggest myths and lies about one of the most successful programs in our nation??s history. Three-quarters of Americans depend heavily on Social Security in their elderly years and nearly half would be living in poverty without it. But as important and popular as it is, Social Security has become a political football. A well-financed campaign??"supported by conservatives, special interest...

The Dissolution of the Financial State: A Marxian Examination of the Political Economy of Money Since the 1930s

Simon Mouatt

The Dissolution of the Financial State: A Marxian Examination of the Political Economy of Money Since the 1930s by Simon MouattThis book considers credit systems in the era of financialization and the erosion of state sovereignty in financial matters. Applying Marx??s political economy and Post-Keynesian endogenous money theory to case studies from the UK and Germany, it argues that the best explanation for these phenomena can be found in the systemic drivers of capitalism.
