Beyond the Conservative Nanny State: Policies to Promote Self-Sufficiency Among the Wealthy
AbstractIn his book, The Conservative Nanny State, economist Dean Baker debunks the myth that conservatives favor the market over government intervention. In fact, conservatives rely on a range of "nanny state" policies that ensure the rich get richer while leaving most Americans worse off. This paper describes strategies for reversing nanny state policies that have the effect of redistributing income upward.
