The main arguments the book that.
You were we're having this debate now about you know the recession what's present going to say.
We get into this crisis we're in right now you know overnight we indicated in two it just to the sub prime crisis.
Argument is is really twenty year old problem.
We got here because of two main reasons one is some.

-- What -- that was well I think partly again mistreating our environment think you we could put our feet up we didn't have to invest in those things on the what -- it also you know post 9/11 is in one of things that you wrote about a -- morning set.
-- contrasts how Dwight Eisenhower.
And his immediate successors.
Dealt with the Cold War and how we dealt with 9/11 here's what's striking.
