Redefining the way we think about unemployment in America today, Out of Work offers devastating evidence that the major cause of high unemployment in the United States is the government itself.
"The most comprehensive book ever to appear on unemployment in the United States." ~George Gilder,author of Wealth and Poverty
"A book of great interest." ~Kenneth Boulding
"Vedder and Gallaway show convincingly that we need once again to rethink our entire notion of unemployment." ~Jonathan R. T. Hughes,Northwestern University
"A triple hit: an engaging narrative of a century of U.S. economic history . . . an attack on the mythology that high wage rates and government spending reduce unemployment and a critique on wrong-headed public policies since 1930 that have raised unemployment levels." ~Anna J. Schwartz,National Bureau of Economic Research
