Alan does a mostly mainstream economic right summary of capitalism in America. He over looks the aging population and the bowling alone concept. He explains creative destruction well and the stupidity of the FED. He does not like populist movements.

Snippets of ideas, articles, covering a broad range of sectors with a business tinge. The disruption aspect is not well articulated, the turbulence is vague...

I read this book in 2023, so my impressions are through that prism.
'The Right Nation', published in 2004, in the middle of the George W.Bush presidency, concludes by suggesting that the Republican Party will be in control for the foreseeable future, as the American left has capitulated to the better organised right. Remembering when this was published (so, excuses), none of the following are mentioned in this book: Obama, Biden, Trump, Palin, Pence. Nor of course is there any discussion of QAnon, or insurrections, or the power of Twitter (X). Curiously, post Bush, Democrats have been in the White House for 12 of the next 16 years.
As an outsider who has only become interested in US politics in recent years, it was interesting to learn that the distrust, and at times hatred, between the two major parties has been around for a long time; political rhetoric has been toxic for ever - it's not a modern phenomenon.
The book made for interesting reading, as it provides an excellent discussion of post-Cold War politics in the USA.

Thoroughly researched but ultimately lacking in message; the conclusions do not seem to be supported by the excellent historical analysis which precedes them. Provides a good background in the history of meritocratic ideas, and the ways in which they have ebbed and flowed over time.
