Wall Street, Main Street, and the Side Street: A Mad Economist Takes a Stroll
Here is a collection of 100 thought-provoking, hard-hitting essays that excite, inspire, and invigorate. With sly wit and profound irony, the essays explore the contradictions of African Americans, femenists, nationalists, conservatives, and others while diminishing cherished assumptions about American culture, gender, politics, and economics. Though many may not agree with the thesis of the book -- everything is economic -- the book will demand an audience as long as the gender gap exists, as long as people of color are perched at the periphery of our society's economic life, and as long as there is political disenfranchisement.
