Paul Bergaia is one Texan who really understands the economy and that is what makes this book a great read that makes great sense.
When George W. Bush took office in 2001, he inherited the largest federal budget surplus in American history - and the prospect of paying off the entire national debt in just eight years. He inherited a strong dollar and sound fiscal policy. He inherited a nation whose economy was so strong that commentators who just decade before were prdicting American decline were now complaining about American dominance.
And yet, Dubya blew it. Squandered everything he's inherited from President Clinton. We thought if Junior was good at anything it was inheriting things. This book is the story of how America's CEO - our first MBA president - has trashed our economy. It shows.
