Featuring the author Michelle Caruso‐​Cabrera, Anchor and reporter, CNBC; co‐​host of the network’s Power Lunch program and former co‐​anchor of Worldwide Exchange, CNBC’s first global daily news program; and Dan Mitchell, Senior fellow, Cato Institute, and co‐​author of Global Tax Revolution.

To CNBC business reporter Michelle Caruso‐​Cabrera, both Republicans and Democrats are responsible for the government’s massive spending increases and excessive social interference over the last 10 years — strangling businesses and crippling the economy, while abandoning all those who believe government should stay out of private lives and pocketbooks. And her criticism also extends to her home field — to opportunistic media pundits who exploit issues to cultivate audiences while promulgating personal ideologies.

Expanding on this in her new book, You Know I’m Right, Caruso‐​Cabrera uses her exceptional business and news experience in partnership with her commitment to fiscal conservatism, limited government, and personal responsibility to analyze a wide range of critical issues. At each step she urges for reducing the size and role of government in our lives and the economy. She takes on the economy, business, the federal deficit, health care, education, Medicare, Social Security, defense, trade, unions, banking, individual rights, immigration, and more — exploring practical solutions, options, and effective reforms.
