Demolition Agenda


Thomas O McGarity


In Demolition Agenda, Professor McGarity shows how adding populists to the Republican's traditional base of free market fundamentalists and establishment Republicans allowed President Donald Trump to come dangerously close to achieving his goal of demolishing the programs that Congress put in place over the course of many decades to protect consumers, workers, communities, children and the environment.  He then offers suggestions for rebuilding the protective edifice and restoring the power of American government to provide the protections that Congress has provided over many decades.
