Another corporate talking-head shill.

A better title would be: 'No, They Can't: Why Government Fails while Corporate Oligarchs Succeed'

Stossel is a professional propagandist who is highly paid to spew forth lies, that is his occupation. Nothing concerning integrity has ever concerned Stossel, he is all about screwing the worker, screwing the little guy. But he confuses the unthinking masses exactly as so-called (and I despise frauds like this who claim to be what they aren't) liberal Paul Krugman, bank lobbyist sleaze.

I actually listened to this on audio cd. I know, I know I didn't "really" read it. However, I saw someone rating this really low and another someone calling it redundant. Stossel makes a lot of good points, unless of course, your bread (I don't eat bread, by the way) is buttered by telling other people what they can and can't do because you are some sort of expert (academics, scientists, teachers, bureaucrats, scribes, pharisees, etc.). If you fall on the side of freedom, then this book will shock you and make you want to exercise all of your freedoms before some well-meaning person stops you from living up to your potential.

Extremely redundant and self-aggrandizing, but lots of good info.

Highly recommended. This may solve many of our government issues. We keep trying the tax and spend, spend, spend and that just makes things worse. Time for another way.
