Another book that I found on the shelves while in the midst of the five week long trek to 940 (some might call 'moving day').
The author was the editor of Harper's magazine.
Harper's Magazine (also called Harper's) is a monthly magazine of literature, politics, culture, finance, and the arts. Launched in June 1850, it is the second-oldest continuously published monthly magazine in the U.S. (Scientific American is the oldest).
The book was released in 1988, so it's a bit dated, but right on target about the Reagan Revolution.
Very well written and certainly adds a level of excitement and interest to the subject of economics which is rare. He has a patrician take on Populist issues.
Too bad The Kardashians weren't around for the 80's. Laham would probably have had a trenchant take on the 'celebrity culture' of today.
