The Tyranny of Dead Ideas – Letting go of the old ways of thinking to unleash a new prosperity by Matt Miller.

Today's dead ideas:

  1. The kids will earn more than we do.
  2. Free trade is “good” (no matter how many people get hurt).
  3. Your company should take care of you.
  4. Taxes hurt the economy (and they are always too high).
  5. Schools are a local matter.
  6. Money follows merit.

Tomorrow’s destined ideas:

  1. Only government can save business.
  2. Only business can save liberalism.
  3. Only higher taxes can save the economy (and the planet).
  4. Only the (lower) upper class can save us from inequality.
  5. Only better living can save sagging paycheques.
  6. Only a dose of “nationalisation” can save local schools.
  7. Only lessons from abroad can save American ideals.
