Beyond the Conservative Nanny State: Policies to Promote Self-Sufficiency Among the Wealthy

July 2006, Dean Baker

In his book, The Conservative Nanny State, economist Dean Baker debunks the myth that conservatives favor the market over government intervention.

This paper describes strategies for reversing nanny state policies that have the effect of redistributing income upward.
