A provocative critique of the Obama administration's economic policies and an examination of America's difficult economic future During the 2008 presidential campaign, Barack Obama promised "a net spending cut" to make government smaller in order to reduce the deficit. But this huge increase in government spending and debt, and the resulting prospect of higher taxes, will make America a poorer country. Are Americans happier because the government has determined where this money should be spent? According to John Lott and Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist, the answer is no, and in Debacle: Obama's War on Jobs and Growth and What We Can Do Now to Regain Our Future they explain why. Obama's economic policies have raised unemployment, slowed economic growth, dramatically raised the national debt, squandered taxpayer money through poor investments, and damaged the housing market. The book explains why Obama's policies on spending, taxes, and regulation have all worked to harm the recovery, increase unemployment, and depress housing prices. * The Congressional Budget Office estimates that the deficits that President Obama proposes for the years from 2011 through 2020 come to a staggering $126,000 per family of four, and John Lott and Grover Norquist make clear why the costs outweigh the benefits * Explains why Keynesian economics is more a way of transferring wealth to political constituencies than a legitimate economic theory for understanding how the economy operates * Posits that Obama's economic policies were more an opportunity "to do big things" than to solve the country's economic problems Arguing that the policies of the Obama administration have created widespread economic chaos, Debacle is a bleak look at American finance from Grover Norquist.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for DEBACLE

"Debacle will end the claims of Paul Krugman and his ilkthat poor, put-upon Obama did the best anyone could do with arecession he inherited. To the contrary, Lott and Norquistconvincingly demonstrate that Obama took specific actions that madethe recession much worse. A lot of Democrats got wealthy underObama, but Obama's Democrats-get-rich-quick policies destroyedmillions of jobs and left Americans with a massive debt hangover.Every American with a bank account should read this book."
--Ann Coulter, best-selling author and syndicatedcolumnist

"Lott and Norquist have penned a persuasive indictment ofPresident Obama's economic record.¿ Jammed with facts andbuilt on a mountain of carefully catalogued evidence, this is apotent resource for anyone who wants to help replace Mr. Obama inthe Oval Office."
--Karl Rove, former Deputy Chief of Staff and SeniorAdvisor to President George W. Bush

"This is the book that everyone concerned about the future ofAmerica must read. Norquist and Lott serve up a depressing butsobering picture of today's economy along with a roadmap ofsolutions to move the country forward."
--Haley Barbour, former Governor of Mississippi

"President Obama's economic policy has been catastrophic forliberty, enterprise, and the American dream--the veryarchetype of what not to do to end recession. Debacledocuments how this happened and why, with outstanding research, facts, and clear thinking. Reading this book is like diggingthrough the rubble of a man-made disaster: It is painful butnecessary for going forward to restore prosperity andopportunity."
--Jeffrey Tucker, executive editor, Laissez-FaireBooks

ATR is a coalition of taxpayer groups, individuals, and businesses opposed to higher taxes at the federal, state, and local levels. It organizes the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, which asks all candidates for federal and state office to commit themselves in writing to oppose all tax increases. John R. Lott, Jr is an economist who has held research and/or teaching positions at the University of Chicago, Yale, Stanford, UCLA, Wharton, and Rice, and was the chief economist at the United States Sentencing Commission from 1988 to 1989. Lott has published over 100 articles in academic journals. He has authored six books including More Guns, Less Crime; Freedomnomics; The Bias Against Guns; and Are Predatory Commitments Credible? He is a contributor and a weekly columnist for FoxNews.com. Lott's Opinion pieces have appeared in several publications, including the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the New York Post, USA Today, and the Chicago Tribune, and he has appeared on television programs including ABC and NBC National Evening News broadcasts, Fox News, The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, and the Today Show.
