Reviews for "Disinherited: How Washington Is Betraying America’s Young"

“This is the book you absolutely need to read if you are a millennial or if you care about one! Arm yourself with the numbers Washington would rather you didn’t focus on.” —THE HONORABLE ELAINE L. CHAO, 24th U.S. SECRETARY OF LABOR (2001-2009)

“The Boomers inherited a world of possibility; they are about to bequeath a mountain of debt. But the future should belong to the young, and this book shows it’s not too late to change course.” —BLAKE MASTERS, CO-AUTHOR WITH PETER THIEL OF ZERO TO ONE (2014), #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“In so many ways, public policy is tilted against the young, yet the power is held by those much older. Furchtgott-Roth and Meyer apply a keen eye and a great way with words to showing how in great detail this has got to change. If this book doesn’t make the younger generation mad, I don’t know what else will.” —ROBERT LITAN, NON-RESIDENT SENIOR FELLOW, THE BROOKINGS INSTITUTION, AUTHOR OF TRILLION DOLLAR ECONOMISTS (2014)
