The False Promise of Big Government

How Washington Helps the Rich and Hurts the Poor

By Patrick M. Garry

Regular price: $9.95

Special price: $3.00

“In this bold and brilliant book, Patrick Garry takes on our overgrown government in the terms of its defenders: he systematically demolishes the argument that a larger government better serves the poor and vulnerable. It is simply essential reading.”
—YUVAL LEVIN, editor of National Affairs

In just 100 pages, this powerful book debunks the myth that only government can help the poor and working class survive; it shows that in fact big government often hurts the very people it purports to help while propping up the rich, powerful, and politically connected.
