The Ruling Minority 1974
by Lawrence Krivit

An appeal to eliminate massive inherited wealth in America and thereby make the government accessible to more people. It is written by a conservative populist, which means I can understand his language and he can read and translate the left-wing revisionists. It contains many tidbits of information, maintains an anti-imperialist, anti-big-government, anti-militarist, and anti-ruling-class perspective. His failings are: (1) over simplification, (2) neo-mercantilist opposition to international trade, (3) no understanding of the cause of inflation, and (4) belief in limited government.

Year Read: 1982
