After The Fall: Saving Capitalism From Wall Street—and Washington
by Nicole Gelinas
Encounter Books, October 2009

In After the Fall, Gelinas shows how the financial crisis that began in 2008 was not a failure of markets, but a failure of government to understand its proper role in markets. Her brilliant reading of financial history and of current events reveals that the problems were predictable, and the solutions straightforward.

  Economics Does Not Lie: A Defense of the Free Market in a Time of Crisis
by Guy Sorman
Encounter Books, July 2009

In Economics Does Not Lie, Guy Sorman defends capitalism from its new enemies. He argues that it is important to remember the unprecedented benefits free markets have brought mankind, and explains that the current crisis can be corrected with the tools of economic science—as long as the forces of ignorance or demagoguery don't prevail. Based on extensive interviews with the world's leading economists, and written with verve and clarity, Sorman's book makes a unique and timely contribution to understanding our time.

The Dream and the Nightmare: The Sixties' Legacy to the Underclass
by Myron Magnet
William Morrow, March 1993

Cited by George W. Bush as the second-most-important book he had ever read—right after the Bible. The Dream and the Nightmare argues that today's underclass owes its existence to the cultural revolution of the Sixties, a revolution that was effected by the prosperous but suffered by the poor.
  Losing Ground: American Social Policy 1950-1980
by Charles Murray
Basic Books, September 1984

The book that has indelibly shaped the debate over welfare in America. In this ground-breaking work, Murray argues that the massive social programs of the 1960's have not only failed to improve conditions for poor Americans, but have perpetuated and intensified the disadvantages that the Great Society set out to eradicate.
