Seeds of Destruction is everything that Washington policymaking is not: sober, lucid, reasoned, timely, bipartisan, and constructive.
Douglas Holtz-Eakin, President of the American Action Forum and former Director of the Congressional Budget Office (2003–2005)

"This is a compact blockbuster of a book that gives six reasons why the U.S. economy has sunk so far and offers ten initiatives that the authors believe will lift us back up. It spares neither political camp and it appeals to both camps to take actions that will repair the damage they have caused over the past decade."
Edmund Phelps, Nobel Laureate in Economics, Professor of Political Economy at Columbia University

Glenn Hubbard and Peter Navarro combine their unique experiences in government and politics with their crystal-clear economic insights to produce a lively and compelling account of the origins of the financial crisis and the problems now plaguing the American economy. The book convincingly explains how government policy planted the seeds of destruction and how a change in government policy can root them out and plant the seeds of prosperity. Their diagnoses and remedies should be read, studied carefully, and applied.
John B. Taylor, Mary and Robert Raymond Professor of Economics, Stanford University, and former Undersecretary of the Treasury for International Finance

A thoughtful and politically provocative diagnosis of America’s economic ills.
Kenneth S. Rogoff, coauthor, This Time is Different, and Thomas D. Cabot Professor of Public Policy, Harvard University

This book is a ‘must-read’ for all persons who are concerned about our economic future. It shows the disastrous folly of our current economic policies and, more important, it lays out the proper policies to achieve a sound and prosperous economic future.
John Cogan, Professor at Stanford University and former Deputy Director of the Office of Management and Budget

In this dramatic nonpartisan book, Glenn Hubbard and Peter Navarro lay out the true roots of the current troubles. They then open their hands and show ‘seeds of prosperity,‘ a new set of policies that can, if planted, make the economic garden grow even more dramatically than it did in the past. No pair of authors is more qualified than these to undertake this.
