Amity Shlaes quickly became one of my favorite authors when she released the Forgotten Man. She built on the findings of the great mind of Milton Friedman to explain what actually happened in the Great Depression of the late 20s-to around 1944.

Now she has a new book out about the Great Society where she surprised me by saying Nixon was as large a part as were the Democrats. Actually though for other reasons, I did not like Nixon one bit. And to this day scorn his memory.

Anyway, this is a great book and it is my belief it applies to our current president. Is Trump actually carrying out his own Great Society. Read her book prior to making up your mind. You may be shocked. Her advice to trump mirrors my own belief; Trump talk less and let your acts show what you do more.
