Hi folks! Long time readers probably know I’ve been haranguing on the deficit and the national debt for a long time. Last week I got an e-mail telling me about a new book called “Deficit: Why Should I Care?” by Marie Bussing-Burks. I had never heard of either the book or Ms. Bussing-Burks, but the topic was interesting. I was offered the opportunity to read a pdf version of the book. That isn’t unusual – such offers seem to arrive at Angry Bear’s doorstep on a regular basis.
What is unusual though, is that I’ve read through much of the book already, and unlike most books purportedly written about the topic, I can safely recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more. It is factual, interesting, well written, very informative and seems to be a fairly unbiased treatment of the issue. That isn’t to say I agree with everything in the book, but I do think the book is very good. Dan has arranged with the publisher for 50% discounts to be made available to any Angry Bear readers who buy it between now and September 5.
FYI, I looked up Ms. Bussing-Burks and found she is an assistant professor at the University of Southern Indiana.
Full disclosure – I do not know anyone at the publisher nor Ms. Bussing-Burks. Furthermore, I did not receive nor will I receive anything for having written any of the above.
