Almost 20 years ago Batra (Southern Methodist Univ.) wrote a best-selling book predicting the imminent onset of another great depression. Perhaps he learned from that experience that sensationalism, not scholarship, sells because this book has little to offer other than sensationalism. It is disorganized, full of poor diction and unsupported assertions, it shows little sense of history, and its use of empirical evidence is amateurish. Because Greenspan's importance derives from his chairmanship of the Federal Reserve, one expects an emphasis on monetary policy in any book discussing him. But Batra rarely mentions monetary policy. Instead he focuses on taxation, arguing that highly progressive taxation is necessary for prosperity because only it creates sufficient aggregate demand. He insists that Greenspan is somehow responsible for the current "ultra-regressive" tax system that has caused a "sinking living standard in America since 1980." The reader is unlikely to understand more about Alan Greenspan or economics from reading this book. ^BSumming Up: Not recommended. R. E. Schenk Saint Joseph's College (IN)
Appeared in Publishers Weekly on 2005-04-18:
In 1987, Alan Greenspan was appointed chairman of the Federal Reserve, and Batra had a bestseller predicting a depression deeper than the Great Depression, lasting from 1990 to 1996. Batra's second book, two years later, predicting the crash of 1990 did less well, and his books predicting disaster in 1996, 1997, 1998 and 1999 found fewer readers, lucid as they were. Batra did correctly predict a stock market downturn in 2000, but erred by blaming the Y2K computer bug and forecasting high inflation and deep, long lasting negative growth. Now Batra has switched from predicting the future to criticizing the past. Readers expecting sensational charges will be disappointed. "This is not fraud in the legal sense," the author reassures us. Instead, Greenspan has "seriously afflicted the finances of millions of families." Batra faults Greenspan's views on social security, minimum wage, taxes and the trade deficit. As always, his economic arguments are expressed elegantly. Missing is a direct link to Greenspan, who had only a peripheral advisory role in these issues (his job is setting interest rates, financial policy and bank regulation) and voices only highly modulated views when he does give opinions. The misplaced focus weakens the sound economic arguments, and the title is sensationalized at best. 100,000 first printing. $100,000 ad/promo. (May 9) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
Appeared in Library Journal on 2005-07-01:
The author of a number of sensationalist books, such as The Great Depression of 1990, Batra (economics, Southern Methodist Univ.) here attacks Alan Greenspan as both economic advisor to President Reagan (for the 1981 income tax cut and for the 1983 Social Security tax hike) and Federal Reserve chair since 1987. Though he spends too much time arguing that Greenspan has aided wealthy friends and politicians, Batra does make many important points. He shows that since 1981, taxes have increased proportionately for middle- and low-income U.S. workers while decreasing for the wealthiest and that wage growth for the average worker has been stagnant despite increases in worker productivity. Because lower-income workers have less disposable income, theorizes Batra, the country has experienced low economic growth and a high level of debt-debt that is now propping up the U.S. stock market and economy. Batra also gives a good explanation of the persistent U.S. trade deficit, which he says results from a combination of currency manipulation by foreign nations and the collapse of domestic manufacturing. Batra's criticisms of Greenspan may be exaggerated, but his economic insights recommend this book to most public and academic libraries.-Lawrence R. Maxted, Gannon Univ., Erie, PA (c) Copyright 2010.
