Mr. Kutner’s book, The End of Laissez-Faire: National Purpose and the Global Economy After the Cold War, describes the Reagan administration’s “anti-government” policies. He said the country has been run under a false utopian view over the last ten years. Deregulation of banks and airlines are examples of failed policies. His book marks the end of an era with the conclusion of the Cold War. He analyzes America’s changing role in the growing global financial and economic community. He said the Soviet Union should still be an important consideration because their governmental changes and economy still impacts the world. Mr. Kutner also talked about the Persian Gulf war and its impact on the well-being of the United States. close
