In Paul Krugman's latest book he takes stock of where the United States has come from and where it’s headed. Explaining the complexities of health care, housing bubbles, tax reform, Social Security, and so much more with unrivaled clarity and precision, Arguing with Zombies is Krugman at the height of his powers and puts him at the front of the debate in the 2020 election year as a guide to two decades’ worth of political and economic discourse in the United States and around the globe.Now, bringing to bear all of her knowledge, grasp, sense of history and observation, Sarah Chayes writes in her new book On Corruption in America, that the United States is showing signs similar to some of the most corrupt countries in the world. Corruption, as she sees it, is an operating system of sophisticated networks in which government officials, key private-sector interests, and out-and-out criminals interweave. Their main objective: not to serve the public but to maximize returns for network members.
