If family background is important in getting ahead, why? And if the processes that transmit economic status from parent to child are unfair, could public policy address the problem?

The economic boom of the 1990s created huge wealth for the bosses, but benefited workers hardly at all. At the same time, the bosses were able to take the political initiative and even the moral high ground, while workers were often divided against each other. This new book by leading labor analyst Michael D. Yates seeks to explain how this happened, and what can be done about it. Essential to both tasks is “naming the system”—the system that ensures that those who do the work do not

It is a commonly held belief that, in 1936, Keynes' General Theory ushered in a new era in economic thought, with faith in the free market being replaced by reliance on systematic government intervention as a means of keeping the economy on an even keel. This book surveys the writings of a large number of economists in the interwar years and argues that the ''Keynesian Revolution'' is a myth, and that the ''new economics'' was a careful and selective synthesis of an ''old economics'' that had
