The US within the ’aughts—hilariously skewered, brilliantly dissected, and darkly clinically determined by way of the bestselling social critic hailed as “the soul mate”* of Jonathan Swift
Barbara Ehrenreich’s first ebook of satirical statement, The Worst Years of Our Lives, concerning the Reagan period, used to be bought with bestselling acclaim. the single challenge was once the identify: couldn’t a few prophetic fact-checker have noticeable that the worst years of our lives—far worse—were nonetheless to come back? the following they're, the 2000s, and during this Land Is Their Land, Ehrenreich matters them to the main biting and incisive satire of her career.
Taking the degree of what we're left with after the most harsh decade in reminiscence, Ehrenreich unearths lurid extremes throughout. whereas individuals of the moneyed elite should buy congressmen, many within the operating category can slightly purchase lunch. whereas a filthy rich minority obsessively consumes plastic surgery, the terrible usually pass with no overall healthiness deal with their little ones. And whereas the company C-suites at the moment are nests of criminal activity, the fewer lucky are fed a nutrition of morality, marriage, and abstinence. Ehrenreich’s antidotes are as sardonic as they're spot-on: puppy coverage to your young ones; Salvation military models if you happen to can now not manage to pay for Wal-Mart; and boundless rage opposed to those that have given us a kingdom scarred by means of deepening inequality, corroded through mistrust, and shamed by means of its legit cruelty.
Full of wit and generosity, those studies from a divided state convey once more that Ehrenreich is, as Molly Ivins stated, “good for the soul. ”

We could even imagine generating a substantially new game with diﬀerent rules: we could use the same counters and the same board to play a game like ‘fox and geese’. What we do not allow is the opportunity for players to remake the rules as they go along, or just to kick over the board. So too with economic experiments: the ‘rules of the game’ deﬁne not just one particular experiment, but a class of experiments which could be run, and therefore a class of economic questions which could be addressed.
Part of the reason An investigative strategy 21 could be that the techniques involved are perceived as principally belonging to other disciplines and that, on the whole, economists are fairly self-assured about the validity of their own methods: ‘economists on the whole think well of what they do themselves and much less well of what their professional colleagues do’ (Galbraith 1971). Nevertheless, if we as economists are to be involved in making policy recommendations on taxation or other measures that aﬀect individual incomes, or if they are to interpret trends in income distribution, then we may just have to take on board methodologies that appear at ﬁrst sight to be alien.
