Hood’s book gets generally positive review in Charlotte Observer/News & Observer

Reviewer Peter Coclanis of UNC-Chapel Hill has this to say in the Charlotte Observer about John Hood’s new book, Our Best Foot Forward:

[W]hat Hood is offering is a thoughtful right/center-right growth prescription heavy on markets, incentives and competition, and suspicious of governmental hyperactivity. Although “Our Best Foot Forward” at times reads rather more like a policy report than a book, it is loaded with data and interesting ideas, and makes valuable contributions to the policy debate in North Carolina.

Fair-minded readers of all political stripes – including those loathe to support the programs Hood is promoting – will likely agree.

Hood discussed the book June 11 for a John Locke Foundation Shaftesbury Society audience.

Hood also discussed the book in an interview with Carolina Journal Radio/CarolinaJournal.tv.
