The book explains the enduring failure of liberalism by looking at it from a wide variety of different angles: political, economic, historical, philosophical, epistemological, institutional, psychological, and from the standpoints of morality and justice. The book is different from most in that it digs below the surface to examine the underpinnings and foundations of liberalism. An intellectual, but not pedantic, book, it is aimed at the common man, seeking to bring big ideas down to earth, helping to provide guidance through our current political-economic-social morass.

About the Author

Michael Martin (Ph.D.) has 35 years of experience, including 30 with the International Monetary Fund, as an international economist, and has traveled to about 100 countries, and seen and worked first-hand on the performance of various political and economic systems. He also worked for the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and a large New York commercial bank. As a Ph.D. economist he has not only worked with senior foreign officals to better manage their countries' macro-economic policy, but has played a role in changing policy, and observed how it worked on the ground. His extensive background in dealing with policies helping the poor, including early in his career work as a social worker for the Welfare Deparment in the Bronx, give him a nuts-and-bolts understanding of the failure of liberal programs.
