Title: New Deal or Raw Deal?: How FDR’s Economic Legacy Has Damaged America
Author: Burton Folsom, Jr.
Blurb: “In this shocking and groundbreaking new book, economic historian Burton W. Folsom exposes the idyllic legend of Franklin D. Roosevelt as a myth of epic proportions. With questionable moral character and a vendetta against the business elite, Roosevelt created New Deal programs marked by inconsistent planning, wasteful spending, and opportunity for political gain — ultimately elevating public opinion of his administration but falling flat in achieving the economic revitalization that America so desperately needed from the Great Depression.”
Review: “A must read for anyone who wants to understand how America came to revere socialism over a free market.”
