Read under protest, but was challenged by a Trump supporter to read something by/about him other than news reports/stories. -- And I was pleasantly surprised! There are some ideas here that actually sound like good ones. The author makes a cogent argument, for example, for addressing the problem of poor public education by creating something of a free market -- poor schools will fail or shape up. I also found his arguments in favor of a Social Security lockbox also interesting and persuasive. -- Of course, I have not heard *any* mention from Candidate Trump or President Trump of the idea he outlines in these pages of a one-time 14.25% tax on all individuals/trusts with a new worth in excess of $10 million dollars. He claims that this would raise $5.7 trillion in new revenue, retire the national debt, and put Social Security on a firmer footing. (I rather doubt he'd've been elected had he touted this!) -- On the whole, while there were a number of things with which I thoroughly disagreed, I confess that there was much food for thought here...and even some suitable policies to pursue.
