Summary
A scholarly exposé of the ideas of political economist James McGill Buchanan and multibillionaire Charles Koch explores their role in the radical right's six-decade campaign to eliminate unions, suppress voting, privatize public education, and minimize restrictions on the wealthy
Summary
In this well-researched biographical study, acclaimed historian Nancy MacLean offers a sobering analysis of the radical Libertarians' rise to political power in the U.S. Focusing on the late James Buchanan, a Nobel Prize-winning economist, she explores his plan to inject his views into the operations of every branch of government. Funded in part by multibillionaire Charles Koch, Buchanan's ideas have been carried out by like-minded political operatives. Here's an unprecedented explanation of the origins of America's current political rift. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
