Jude Wanniski's masterpiece defined the policies at the heart of the Reagan economic boom that continues today and promises a coming century of global peace and prosperity. Writing with a simplicity and liveliness uncommon to his subject, Wanniski offers a fresh general theory of the world's political evolution that explains how and why economies fail and succeed, now and as far as we can imagine. Commentator Robert D. Novak said, in the introduction to the 20th anniversary edition, that it was one of two books that "shaped [Novak's] mature philosophy of politics and government." The Way the World Works was named one of the 100 most influential books of the 20th century by National Review magazine.
