The Seven Fat Years and How To Do It Again Wall Street Journal editor and vice president Robert Bartley discussed his book, The Seven Fat Years and How to Do It Again, published by Free Press. The book deals with the seven years of economic prosperity in the 1980s when the U.S. economy grew by almost 33% and nearly twenty million new jobs were created. The author claims that the years of recession in the early 1990s were not a result of the greed of the 1980s, as opponents charge. Rather they were the result of the economists of the 1990s abandoning the practices of the '80s. He said the 1980s was not a terrible decade in terms of economic and political prosperity in the United States, as the media appears to maintain, but rather an era of affluence and political prominence for the U.S. and its population. close
