Summary: Beset by economic woes with hard-to-understand causes and difficult-to-prescribe remedies, many focus on the need for more government programs and more government spending. Idealized views of government lead to bitterly unhappy citizens. In fact, Michael L. Marlow says, government is the last place to look for efficiency. It is, rather, private markets that naturally drive toward efficient outcomes and it is unreasonable to expect governments to mimic those effects.--[book jacket]
