My Book Commercial
By Arnold Kling
I should start by saying that the book does not contain a single major policy recommendation that is politically palatable today. That fact will greatly limit its appeal to most Washington wonks. To gauge their reaction to Crisis of Abundance, imagine how you would react if, while waiting in the checkout line at a supermarket, you pulled a paperback novel off the sales rack, thumbed through it, and didn’t find any sex scenes. What was the publisher thinking? Who would buy this?
My sales pitch for Crisis of Abundance gets a bit more positive later on.
