Eat the Rich

O’Rourke combines a soupcon of Swift’s A Modest Proposal and Keynsian garnish in an effort to find out why some places are “prosperous and thriving”.

P. J. O’Rourke attended Johns Hopkins. He began writing funny things in 1960s “underground” newspapers. He is a contributing editor at The Weekly Standard, H. L. Mencken fellow at the Cato Institute, and a member of the editorial board of World Affairs.
