The Conservative Nanny State

Read Dean Baker’s book online.
In his new book, economist Dean Baker debunks the myth that conservatives favor the market over government intervention. In fact, conservatives rely on a range of “nanny state” policies that ensure the rich get richer while leaving most Americans worse off. It’s time for the rules to change. Sound economic policy should harness the market in ways that produce desirable social outcomes – decent wages, good jobs and affordable health care.

  1. The funny thing is that Baker and Walter Williams make alot of the same or at least similar claims. Yet both choose different sides of the political spectrum. I think Baker’s only mistake is that he believes that many progressives unintentionally support more government rather than market-based solutions.
