Putting Government In Its Place: The Case for a New Deal 3.0 tells the story of the House that FDR Built. Responding to the Great Depression, President Franklin Roosevelt and his team created four new clusters of domestic policy—(1) broad-based economic security guarantees, (2) means-tested welfare programs, (3) across-the-board market regulation, and (4) massive market manipulation—the original New Deal of 1933-1938, version 1.0. For the next 80 years, both Democrats and Republicans added dozens of new programs within the same four policy clusters, shaping today's New Deal, version 2.0.
Mr. Riemer believes it is the perfect time to update the New Deal to address our 21st-century concerns. He will explain the major gaps, flaws, and mistakes of the New Deal and outline fundamental and sweeping changes needed to revive it to guarantee far greater economic security for all Americans, make our market economy dramatically more productive, and enlarge the nation's wealth, essentially a New Deal 3.0.
