Daniel Okrent on One Billion Americans
"an original, engaging, and necessary book."
Daniel Okrent, the prize-winning author of six books including The Guarded Gate and Last Call: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition, just finished reading One Billion Americans and calls it "an original, engaging, and necessary book."
One Billion Americans is not just surpassingly intelligent — it’s also very clever: To support his plea for a much larger population, Yglesias sneaks in remedies for nearly every domestic policy failure that now besets us. In the process of arguing for a nation with more people, he provides the tools to build one that is also more prosperous and more equitable. This is an original, engaging, and necessary book.
