A powerful argument for the principles and policies required to grow the American economy.
Written by Patrick Toomey, president of the influential Club for Growth, this book addresses the low-tax, limited government approach needed to revive the American economy. Divided into three comprehensive parts, it skillfully contributes to the dialogue regarding the future of the American economy. Part One explains the principles and beliefs underlying a low-tax/limited government agenda; Part Two describes the legislative and policy changes required to encourage long-term economic growth; and Part Three examines why a pro-growth approach provides the best foundation for solving problems such as Social Security insolvency and generating economic opportunities for all Americans. Straightforward and accessible, The Road to Prosperity also touches upon important issues such as: expansion of free trade, privatizing Social Security, and resisting further government regulation of the economy. Timely in its prescriptions for the U.S. economy and timeless in its articulation of free market principles, this is a book that will have enormous appeal to anyone interested in economic, politics, and the current crisis in our country.
