"It may yet take an alchemy of Left and Right to confound the corporate center."
Disappointing. I had this recommended to me recently by a progressive friend. It's sad, given that there are very good books out right now like "Free Lunch" and "The Conservative Nanny State" that explain why the actually-existing-capitalism that's defended by movement conservatives is not a free market. As long as people do not recognize corporate capitalism as a product of the state, they will either misguidedly defend it (thinking they are defending the free market), or misguidedly defend the state or attack free markets (thinking they are attacking corporate capitalism).
Frank is most famous for his book on Kansas, whose basic thesis both the left and right parrot despite being completely wrong.
