With proposals for fixing everything from health care to U.S. foreign policy, The Next Falling Empire is required reading for anyone who still believes the American way of life is worth preserving. Packed with policy prescriptions to fix broken bureaucracies and damaged institutions, this far-reaching road map shows: * How centralization can eliminate health care fraud to the tune of billions of dollars saved. * Why mandatory national service for college students will build a stronger country-and better students. * The reason leaflets could do more than bombs to bring peace to Iraq. * The way to rein in outsourcing to China. * Why eliminating the IRS-and dozens of other government agencies-makes sense and saves money. In the end, the next falling empire doesn't have to be our own.
