The Darwin Economy: Liberty, Competition, and the Common Good by Robert H. Frank (Sep 4, 2011)
This man was on Morning Joe. Interesting ideas. What would Paul Krugman and Robert Reich evaluate his Ideas?

One review:
This review is from: The Darwin Economy: Liberty, Competition, and the Common Good (Hardcover)
Wow, this has to be one of the most interesting, well argued books I have read in a while. As you might have guessed from the brief description posted by Amazon above, in this book, Robert Frank, puts forth a set of arguments against libertarianism and the laissez faire approach to economics. This is an undoubtedly popular field for debate and there have been countless other books written on the topic. Most of these, however, attack libertarianism from a moral position. The problem with that approach of course is that it becomes very difficult to prove why one set of moral beliefs is superior to another and the end result becomes something of a stand-off between deontological vs. consequentialist viewpoints.
