The Rise of the Insane State - What is Happening to the U.S. Economy?

Each day when Americans awaken, our laws, rules, and regulations grow and become more complex. Thus, each passing the day, the government becomes bigger and more monstrous. Unfortunately, taxes and incarceration rates rise along with the expansion of government. However, government cannot continuously grow at the expense of the economy. A capitalistic country reaches a breaking point, when the economy starts to break down and stagnates. Then a stagnating economy becomes a very dangerous time, because government claims that capitalism failed, and it must take over large sections of the economy, fueling and accelerating the stagnation.

This book presents a broad view of the U.S. legal system, and defines the relationships between the people, businesses, and their government. The author does not use complicated statistics or high-level economic jargon. This book is written for any intelligent person, who wants to understand why government takes over its economy. This book uses numerous examples and cases from the United States, but these ideas could be applied to any country.
