First a good short movie by Progressive economists ECON 4. They say that the country's budget deficit is NOT an important economic problem. The main economic problem is widespread UNEMPLOYMENT, and increased government spending should be part of the cure. Politicians of both parties are lying.

Then KD reviews a scathing and very funny book with first-hand details of how the State Department botched Iraq reconstruction--written by a foreign service officer on the scene who helped botch it.
This program was previously broadcast, as NWN #254, in January 2013.

The book reviewed is "We Meant Well: How I Helped Lose the Battle for the Hearts and Minds of the Iraqi People," by Peter Van Buren (Metropolitan Books, 2011).

New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "oppressive yoke") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
