Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Dr. Claud Anderson is a noted black author who has successfully implemented social and economic change throughout his career. His unique background of experience is reflected in PowerNomics: The National Plan. To implement the strategy of industrializing Black communities, he has established a vertically integrated seafood industry that is currently operating and will expand into urban areas across the nation. His company is one of the few black-owned companies to make stock available to the general public through an initial public offering. In addition to his most recent seafood project, he owns a vertically integrated publishing company and was one of the first blacks to own a radio station in Florida.

Dr. Anderson headed two economic development corporations in Florida and was appointed by President Jimmy Carter as Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Department of Commerce and the head of the Coastal Plains Regional Commission. In that position he worked with governors in the southeast states to develop and fund economic development projects, including seafood. He was Coordinator of Education for the State of Florida under Governor Reubin Askew during integration and has held a number of high-level positions in national and state politics. He is also President of The Harvest Institute, a black research, education and advocacy organization. He is imminently qualified to offer a plan to empower Black America.

I have been a self-proclaimed conscious person for 5 years now.

I began with reading black history studying ancient african civilizations and traditions. When I found out about Ancient Kemit and Kush and the African connection to the Hebrews I honestly believed that the major problem we had in this country was lack of self-knowledge. Even though I still beleive that to be a major issue, I know now that the force that keeps us down is ignorance of a different type. It is the ignorance of how a Democratic Capitalist system truly works that keeps us at the bottom. It was and is the ignorance of our past and present leaders who push and promote intergration when it's obvious it has failed us. And finally it is each and every black individuals ignorance when he moves out of a black community when they become middle class, diluting our voting and economic base. But now i have no excuses I now know what is going on around me. If you want to know buy this book.

Dr. Anderson does not compromise (like so many Black leaders of today) when discussing the core issues behind our bleak plight in this country- racism and economics. He attacks the 'improper behaviors' that we as blacks acquire through subconcious reinforcement, such as treachery, deceit, and 'Black Samboism' (a term I'm particularly fond of) e.g., siding with the racist majority in this country and seeking their favor at the expense of other Blacks. He also mentions a plehtora of excellent economic, religious, educational, and COMMUNITY issues that only we as Black people can improve and refine upon.

Dr. Anderson is also quite accurate in stating that Blacks will be 'a permenant, dependent underclass' if we do not begin to aggregate our resources (finanical, educational, social, etc.)

He also brings to light the sad fact of how this society is FIGHTING to marginalize and minimalize Blacks as much as possible, to keep us the better 'ignorant, docile consumer'

Moreover, how other minorities (Asians, Indians, and Arabs) seek economic opportunities in Black neighborhoods, often leaving a large 'vacumming sound' in their wake having exploited Blacks for the money that we do have.

A MUST READ FOR ALL BLACK AMERICANS!!

This book offers a VERY realistic plan for Black America. The reviewer that said it was unrealistic, truly must have little to no confidence in the Black Man and Woman. I differ strongly, if we built this country we can rebuild our own communities. And I truly believe we not only have the man power, but the creative capabilities.
This book should be studied and implemented into practice AT EVERY level within EVERY ORGANIZATION that is for the empowerment of our people.
Once again Dr. Claud Anderson has taken a revolutionary step in resolving issues. Blacks are victims of a traumatic experience Slavery, and continue to be victims of an overwhelming disease- White supremacy. We need all the solutions that we can get, and these solutions have proven to me, to be a necessary guide that I will implement within my own community.

Very seldom do I come across a book that serves as a real solution to one of societies real problems. Black America, take notice to Dr. Anderson's work! He clearly dissects many of the social and economic issues that have held Black America back. By the same token, he has brilliantly demonstrated how Black America can realistically overcome these problems. This book is a masterpiece and I highly recommend to all!

Format: Hardcover
A continuation of Black labor White wealth, this account is a program of action for those interested with the implimentaion of the economic model based on Powernomics and the fascinating industries available for exploitation within certain communities. Additionally this addition has updated stats and excellent examples of programs designed to help control-preserve community economic development and culture as well as history...to protect communities from outsiders with their own interests thru ethno-aggregation and consolidation urban communities can learn to impliment basic protective procedures. Fascinating far reaching analysis, that should be of interest for those areas facing population displacement thru gentrification. If developed properly this Powerenomics plan can serve areas well into the next century and beyond.

Mr. Andersons' book provides a thorough examination, diagnosis, and best possible cure for what ails black america. Not poor whites, hispanics, arabs, jews, gays, or white women. You owe it to you and your family to at least check out the facts of this examination and then decide.

White america has always put their modus operandi in our face; this is our society, these are our rules, do the best you can with what we decide to give you; don't bother me while I make my money. If you do, the police will handle you.

Here is Black americas' call to focus on what should have been the legacy of civil rights - economic empowerment.

Before I read this book, I had not one clue how bad we as African Americans had it. This book truly opened my eyes. The statistics that were presented would make Dr. King literally cry. We have gotten so far behind other nationalities that it is literally pathetic. Claud Anderson's vision if implemented can really change the course that us as Blacks are on. This book should be in every Black American's household.
