Editorial Reviews

Review


With a thoroughly 'reader friendly' text, Zimmer lays out...  an approach to (widespread) reforms. Of note are Zimmer's thoughts concerning contemporary contentious issues that have paralyzed  Congress and polarized the nation. As informed and informative as it is thoughtful and thought-provoking, "The Enlightened Capitalism Manifesto" is very highly recommended for...  readers who are concerned about the economic and political state of the country and would make a popular addition to community and academic libraries (as well as) Economic  and Political Science Studies... Midwest Book Review


A sweeping call for broad reform by an...  experienced author.
The  focus is Zimmer's promotion of enlightened capitalism--i.e., capitalism without greed or excessiveness. The opposite, he says, is unbridled capitalism, the spell under which the U.S. has fallen, as the gap between the haves and have-nots widens. Zimmer's common-sense approach and unaffected writing style (is) unburdened by complicated jargon or technical language. 
Like having a chat with an erudite, opinionated uncle; even if readers don't agree with all his views, they'll recognize the value of his experience. Kirkus Review

The Enlightened Capitalism Manifesto has been named as a finalist in a survey of '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading'! conducted by The Author's Show.com

From the Back Cover

Henry B. Zimmer has compiled an integrated but controversial framework of economic and political reforms designed to solve America's domestic issues and restore the United States to its former greatness. These reforms are the product of his innovative "out of the box" thinking.
Enlightened Capitalism embraces the concept of social responsibility which levels both the financial and political playing fields.
Mr. Zimmer tackles the issues of political corruption, unbridled greed, and the injustices of out financial markets. He proposes measures to effectively regulate bankers, lawyers, lobbyists and problematic pension programs.
Mr. Zimmer then makes recommendations for effective job creation programs as well as reforms to our taxation, education and healthcare systems. He takes on the thorny "hot button" issues that divide our country, such as abortion and gun control.
Finally, based on almost fifty years of experience, Mr. Zimmer exposes inflation myths and proves guideline for personal financial planning that are appropriate for all Americans.
This book is structured to be interactive with you, the reader. As specific changes are presented along with Mr. Zimmer's reasoning, you will be directed to questions designed to elicit your vote. You may support or reject each proposal.

Mr. Zimmer has created a website at enlightenedcapitalism.us where you can print all the questions, vote online and view the cumulative results at anytime. The Enlightened Capitalism Manifesto is a call to action. It is only by dispelling apathy and lethargy that meaningful reform is possible.

Format: Paperback
The economic down turn and toxic political environment is part of our daily lives. Most folks simply complain and say how bad it is. However Henry B. Zimmer in his book The Enlightened Capitalism Manifesto: A Blue Print for a Revitalized America has taken the time to think about our problems and share a plausible blue print for recovery.
In response to President Obama’s cry for new solutions, Zimmer’s book is laid out in a way that is interactive. You can download from his website [...] a list of questions and vote online and view the cumulative results at any time.
This book is a call to action, building from his years working in business and working as a CPA.
Some ideas may seem radical, but often solutions to big problems take a big leap of faith to think “outside the box”.
Zimmer presents “enlightened capitalism” which embraces the concept of social responsibility which levels both the financial and political playing fields. He breaks down approaches to reforms on taxation, immigration, education, and healthcare systems.
This book also tackles controversial hot button issues like abortion, gay rights, and gun control.
Regardless of your background, The Enlightened Capitalism Manifesto: A Blue Print for a Revitalized America is sure to make you think and realize that you too can be part of the solution instead of the malaise of complacency.

Although the word "Manifesto" in the title might turn some people off, I hope many buy and read this book. Zimmer is a good writer as well as a thoughtful and intelligent commenter on the problems we have in the U.S. His many years in Canada - and important contacts there - have enabled him to find solutions and suggest how Americans can choose better paths and turn our country toward a sound future. This excellent book needs readers with insight and willingness to learn and work toward progress.
