America's Counter-Revolution
The Constitution Revisited

From the back cover:

This book challenges the assumption that the Constitution was a landmark in the struggle for liberty. Instead, Sheldon Richman argues, it was the product of a counter-revolution, a setback for the radicalism represented by America’s break with the British empire. Drawing on careful, credible historical scholarship and contemporary political analysis, Richman suggests that this counter-revolution was the work of conservatives who sought a nation of “power, consequence, and grandeur.” America’s Counter-Revolution makes a persuasive case that the Constitution was a victory not for liberty but for the agendas and interests of a militaristic, aristocratic, privilege-seeking ruling class.

Good interview, Sheldon. I wish it would have been longer!

Wonderful use of a Hazlitt-style (I guess Bastiat, really) argument to refute the idea that government spending is the same as private investment. It ought to be elementary that the government, having no real resources or productive capability of its own, can add anything whatsoever to the market without taking it from somewhere else, but it's amazing how few people get it.
