My review of Hunter Lewis’s Where Bernie Went Wrong: And Why His Remedies Will Just Make Crony Capitalism Worse was published February 4 in Barron’s:

Bernie Sanders’ first presidential campaign was almost certainly his last; within four years, he’ll turn 79. But his strong performance in the Democratic primaries could inspire others to pick up his torch. Sanders garnered a surprising number of votes by presenting himself as a candidate with new solutions for the country’s many problems.

Hunter Lewis, an investment consultant and author of several books on economic issues—all written, like this one, in a clear and conversational style—shows that Sanders’ proposed solutions aren’t new at all. They represent the same bromides that have burdened economic progress for more than a century.

I’ve previously reviewed two of Lewis’s other books for Barron’s:

On a different topic (the Israel-Palestine conflict), I’ve also reviewed Ari Shavit’s My Promised Land: The Triumph and Tragedy of Israel for Barron’s.

And on that same topic, Scott McConnell has reviewed for Barron’s my own book Obstacle to Peace: The US Role in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, describing it as a damning indictment that “must be reckoned with” by those subscribing to the mainstream narrative of the conflict.

The government perpetually lies to the public about important issues. The mainstream media dutifully serve to manufacture consent for criminal policies.

I free people’s minds by exposing state propaganda intended to keep them in servitude to the politically and financially powerful. My writings empower readers with the knowledge to see through the deceptions and fight for a better future, for ourselves, our children, and future generations of humanity.

I’m an independent political analyst, journalist, publisher and editor of Foreign Policy Journal, and author of several books. I’m also a coach who helps writers communicate their ideas more effectively to make a greater positive impact.
