It is high time for such a book, especially during a presidential election year.

Pessimism is ubiquitous throughout the Western World as the pressing issues of massive debt, high unemployment, and anemic economic growth divide the populace into warring political camps. Right- and Left-wing ideologues talk past each other, with neither side admitting the other has any good ideas. In American Gridlock, leading economist and political theorist H. Woody Brock bridges the Left/Right divide, illuminating a clear path out of our economic quagmire.

“With rigorous logic, American Gridlock identifies five major problems confronting the nation. These range from salvaging today’s “lost decade,” to the unequal distribution of wealth, to preventing bankruptcy from “entitlements spending,” and to preventing future financial market crises. Woody Brock does not simply offer his opinions about these crises. Rather, he deduces win-win solutions to each of these from First Principles. It is high time for such a book, especially during a presidential election year.”

“Woody Brock is a brilliant economic thinker and we should heed his call for an Infrastructure Marshall Plan to lift our national economy. This book should be required reading for everyone who cares about America's future, particularly our elected officials.”

Editor-in-Chief of U.S. News & World Report; Chairman and Co-Publisher of the New York Daily News

“Woody Brock’s new book, American Gridlock is going to force everybody to think through their views on the critical issues of public policy facing America today. It is not just a question of a failure of leadership. It is also a question, as he puts it, of a failure of thought and analysis. He focuses on this in order to overcome what he terms “the Dialogue of the Deaf;” the shouting match between the Left and the Right and its inevitable manifestation as gridlock. Agree or not, this is the kind of book to which everybody should pay attention.”

“Woody Brock is one of America’s best kept secrets.  My firm has had the good fortune of benefiting from his in depth analysis of future political and economic trends for years.   American Gridlock allows the reader to do the same.”

“Woody Brock is one of the most unreasonable men I know: because I agree with George Bernard Shaw that the reasonable man adapts himself to the world, whilst the unreasonable man persists in adapting the world to himself, and therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”

Edward Smith

“Woody Brock’s writings are often the first place I encounter issues that soon become central debates within public policy. He is prescient, penetrating, broad, surprising and wise. Some writers illuminate yesterday’s news, a few may shed light on tomorrows. But very few thinkers can help you to understand the issues that will shape not only next year, but also the next decade. As America faces a pivotal election, his book could not be more timely.”
