IN THE BEGINNING 

The following is an adapted excerpt from the new book “Kill It to Save It: An Autopsy of Capitalism’s Triumph over Democracy” by Corey Dolgon (Policy Press, 2017):

“By reducing taxes on the wealthy and outspending the Soviets into oblivion, Reagan restored a semblance of American domination over globalized production at the same time that he broke unions and reversed integration programs and gutted public education, health care, housing, and any environmental and financial regulation he could. He also allowed for the privatization of public lands and resources to the highest bidders, promising politics could deliver for the private sector that paid for his presidency.”
