In America today unregulated capitalism has captured the country, while respect and equality for the people continues to be diminished. We are currently being run by a minority of the wealthy, with the division of the "haves" and the "have-nots" growing stronger daily. The majority of the people are "working class" but even the mostly working class lifestyles are being gobbled up: of, by, and for the rich. The author has exposed the many ways this happens and offers solutions to turn things around so that everyone has an equal opportunity in the economy. We need new leadership that really believes that democracy can work, get the "working class" registered to vote and vote for what is right for the people not just the unregulated capitalists. Edmund Burke summed it up very well when he said, "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." With that comes the responsibility to vote for statesman-like persons who provide vision and leadership for the people. The economy, in turn, would become one of Social Capitalism, where the wealthy, the working class and the government are equal partners in providing a decent living wage for all. Sound impossible? Then dig into this carefully researched book, and find some real answers to address the dilemmas of modern America's democracy and economy.
