Laying about both to the left and the right, and denouncing the "broker state" that gives out what any group is strong enough to demand, the codirectors of the National Center for Economic Alternatives force their readers to think. Their program for full employment and utilizing America's wealth instead of wasting it is a supply-side approach with a strong public sector, much community participation, and a good bit of planning. The implications for foreign economic policy are not altogether clear, but this is a book that cannot be easily dismissed.
