Praise for Seeds of Destruction
"Hubbard and Navarro propose a set of realistic solutions. The authors bring their vast academic and policy experience to bear on weighty issues such as U.S. oil dependence, health-care reform, Medicare, and housing imbalances. Their solutions have a distinctly bipartisan flavor."
"This is a good and useful book."
"Hubbard and Navarro provide a cogent analysis of America's dangerous economic decline as well as a carefully thought out plan for recovery based on a manufacturing renaissance."
"A well-argued--and exceedingly timely--call to action for the White House and Congress to end partisan political bickering and move the American economy back to sound principles like free markets, entrepreneurship, and a renewed manufacturing base that will restore our nation's greatness. Hubbard and Navarro focus a bipartisan perspective on practical policy reform."
"It is time for a clean sheet of paper that creates the ultimate focus on creating real jobs and driving the success of our private sector by significantly improving our global competitiveness and not further eroding it. Kudos to Glenn Hubbard and Peter Navarro for doing just that!"
"Seeds of Destruction is everything that Washington policymaking is not: sober, lucid, reasoned, timely, bipartisan, and constructive. The United States is on a path to greater danger and diminished aspirations. Hubbard and Navarro illuminate the path to fulfilling this generation's obligation to leave behind a nation with greater freedom and prosperity than it inherited."
"Glenn Hubbard and Peter Navarro combine their unique experiences in government and politics with their crystal-clear economic insights to produce a lively and compelling account of the origins of the financial crisis and the problems now plaguing the American economy. The book convincingly explains how government policy planted the seeds of destruction and how a change in government policy can root them out and plant the seeds of prosperity. Their diagnoses and remedies should be read, studied carefully, and applied."
"A thoughtful and politically provocative diagnosis of America's economic ills."
"This book is a 'must-read' for all persons who are concerned about our economic future. It shows the disastrous folly of our current economic policies and, more important, it lays out the proper policies to achieve a sound and prosperous economic future."
"This is a compact blockbuster of a book that gives six reasons why the U.S. economy has sunk so far and offers ten initiatives that the authors believe will lift us back up. It spares neither political camp and it appeals to both camps to take actions that will repair the damage they have caused over the past decade."
