Author's position is easy to guess after reading the first few articles: tax cut only encourages wealthy people to spend more money to out-do or crowd-out people, with the basic needs of the poor got deprived of. The same idea was vetted throughout the book and I found it too much.
I like his use of basic economic theories to explain common social phenomenon, especially the winner-take-all situation in financial sectors and schooling. To conclude, "Economic Naturalist", the same author's earlier book, is much more interesting.
