Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
Thomas Woods's book got pretty thoroughly debunked in the Amazon reviews, in particular a review by professional economist and UMass prof Herbert Gintis. Woods's degrees (both baccalaureate and PhD) are in history, not economics. He works at an ideological think tank rather than an academic institution. His book is published by an ideological fringe publishing house that is known, among other things, for publishing the thoroughly-debunked smear piece Unfit for Command (the **original** Swift Boating) in 2004. Woods's claimed "documentation" documents little, and his arguments are basically bunk.
