Doug Henwood is the author of three books, After the New Economy, Wall Street, and The State of the USA Atlas .
Published by the New Press, October 2003. Forthcoming in paper, June 2005.
One of Newsday's best books of 2003.
Fast, funny and consistently merciless toward the purveyors of economic delusion and deception. I feel ten times smarter than I was before I read this book!

My dream is that no only economists and sociologists, but also
everybody in Cultural Sciences will read this book!
Doug Henwood is a wicked genius who
