Written by Peter Navarro, of the John F. Kennedy School of Government’s Energy and Environmental Policy Center, The Dimming of America deals with the current and future economic well being of the electric utility industry, and the impact of that economically distressed industry on the long-term economic well being of the nation at large.
In Mr. Navarro’s own words, the book is intended to be an “indictment” of the regulatory process a process which, according to Mr. Navarro, continues to suppress utility rates with the result that utility executives are foregoing necessary capital investment, to the long-term detriment of consumers, shareholders, national security and overall national economic interests. Mr. Navarro hopes that his book will provide a blueprint for conservative policy reforms designed to prevent the “dimming of America.”
