How Neocons Messed Up America

You get a detailed explanation from Paul Krugman in his 2007 New York Times bestseller entitled The Conscience of a Liberal. I just finished reading the 2009 update a couple of days ago -- which contains a new introduction after he won the Nobel -- and I must say that the analysis in there will sound stunningly familiar to those who know or have figured out how modern Mauritius was really built and why we have been heading in the wrong direction for more than a quarter of a century now. It also contains plenty of ideas to make Mauritius great again. So I would highly recommend it for immediate consumption.

Of course given that it is written by Krugman I have to warn you that you face the risk of seriously improving your writing once you will put down the book.

Who are the neocons messing up Dodoland? And who are their useful idiots?

The usual suspects of course: Sithanen and 'Bretton Woods' Ali for starters, Berenger and surprisingly... Navin Ramgoolam.
Quite a few useful idiots. Here's a hint. They will pretend they are free-marketeers after they get chairmanships or other perks from being a member of the neocon system. They may even come on TV and mistake bean-counting for Kelaal.

We've been badly messed up by the flat tax crap.
