America is on the brink of financial collapse. Decades of political overpromising and underfunding have created a wave of debt that could swamp our already feeble economy. And the politicians' favorite tricks--raising taxes, borrowing from foreign governments, and printing more money--will only make it worse. Only one thing might save us: Roll back the government. Historian Thomas E. Woods, Jr. explains that we may still have a chance to avert total economic disaster--but only by completely changing our understanding of government. With bracing candor, he dissects just how the political class has nearly destroyed America's economy, and suggests how the coming collapse can be turned to your advantage--and the advantage of all who believe in liberty and limited government.--From publisher description.
