Summary:
"This national bestseller chronicles the dangers of an administration that has raised dishonesty to dizzying heights. Economist Paul Krugman exposes the facts that speak for themselves. From identifying the flaws in George W. Bush's economic plans to telling the story behind California's energy crisis, to revealing the administration's reasons for going to war in Iraq, Krugman offers justification for his criticisms and sets the first years of the twenty-first century in a stark new light. This up-to-date edition includes a new introduction and other material that reflect the events of 2004"--Jacket.
