Reference Materials – 5 Easy Theses: Commonsense Solutions to America’s Greatest Economic Challenges – June 15

Ordinarily there are included in Reference Materials, inter alia, book reviews from the NY Times and the Washington Post (and, if our focus book is on a financial topic, The Wall Street Journal and, if it is on an international topic, one of the leading London newspapers).

Although “5 Easy Theses” was published by Houghton Mifflin more than a month ago on 5/3/2016, there do NOT appear to be any book reviews in any newspapers (major or minor) except The Boston Globe.

Accordingly, the review from The Boston Globe is posted in this section.

In addition, the reader’s attention is called to all of the Editorial Review Excerpts included in the Original Proposal (which is the second section above on this Bulletin Board) from –

Paul A. Volcker, Chairman of the Federal Reserve (1979 to 1987) under Presidents Carter and Reagan and currently chairman of the Volcker Alliance
Edward O. Wilson, University Research Professor Emeritus, Harvard University, Twice Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Non-Fiction
Tom Daschle, Former U.S. Senate Majority Leader (Democrat, S. Dakota)
David T. Ellwood, Scott M. Black Professor of Political Economy and Former Dean of the Harvard U’s Kennedy School of Government
Clayton Yeutter, former Chairman, Republican National Committee, and former United States Secretary of Agriculture
Norman Ornstein, author, political scientist, and resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute
Jonathan D. Quick, MD, MPH, Management Sciences for Health, Global Health Council, and Harvard Medical School
Michael S. Helfer, Former Vice Chairman, Citigroup, Inc.
Lawrence S. Bacow, President of Tufts University (2001-2011)

Our apologies for not posting the review from The Boston Globe earlier -- we were hoping for book reviews from our traditional sources. However, we now have only 8 days to go until our June 15 meeting.
