Lawrence Lindsey ’76 Writes ‘Thoughtful and Compelling Indictment’ of Elected Leaders

Lawrence Lindsey ’76

Lawrence Lindsey ’76 served as a senior staff economist during the Reagan administration and went on to hold prominent positions under presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush. His latest book—Conspiracies of the Ruling Class: How to Break Their Grip Forever (New York: Simon & Schuster, 2017)—is described by Aaron Hughey in the Bowling Green Daily News as a “thoughtful and compelling indictment of our elected leaders.”

Describing Lindsey’s work as a “exceptionally well-researched,” Hughey went on to praise the book for its lack of partisan leaning. “His words tend to ring true regardless of whether the reader is liberal or conservative, Republican or Democrat. Indeed, it is difficult to argue against many of his talking points.” Read Aaron Hughey’s review of Lawrence Lindsey’s Conspiracies.
