Prosperity. Former Federal Reserve chair Alan Greenspan and journalist and historian Adrian Wooldridge have written an economic history for general audiences titled, Capitalism in America: A History. The core message is no surprise: creative destruction leads to prosperity. Let those forces happen without picking winners and losers. Avoid protecting jobs and companies whose time has passed, and don’t overregulate. Let the old ways give way to the new. Readers who enjoy history, economics and public policy are those most likely to enjoy reading this book.
