This trenchant study analyzes the rise and decline in the quality and format of science in America since World War II. Science-Mart attributes this decline to a powerful neoliberal ideology in the 1980s which saw the fruits of scientific investigation as commodities that could be monetized, rather than as a public good.

// Our product is doubt. \\ // The production of ignorance is sound business strategy. \\
In just the first several pages, you know you are reading a genius level book by a most learned individual! Mr. Mirowski covers the gamut of the privatization of scientific research in America, and in a most devastating, yet readable manner. In this outstanding book, the author covers those same people one reads of frequently in conjunction with the banksters - - which is to be expected, as the full-spectrum destruction of the economy for the majority is part and parcel of tremendous wealth transfer to the richest. A complementary book to read with or after this is Conspiracy Theory in America, by Lance Dehaven-Smith.
