Editorial Reviews

Review

A concise, well-researched argument against the dangers of unregulated capitalism. For students of political and economic theory, it will serve as a factual, well-composed dissection of an extremely important topic.  A handy guide to the uses and abuses of capitalism. - Kirkus Indie Review

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.

The writer uses the same terms and phrases over and over. While much of this book is opinion and not backed up by facts that can be researched, it makes many good points and exposes flaws in the capitalism system.

Gaasvig attacks what he calls our unfettered capitalist system and argues that we need to reboot the system into a Social Capitalist system where the workers are an equal contributor. He details many things that would need to change like a populace that votes it's interest so we have decision of the majority rather than the majority of the few that came out to vote, caps on the greed of capitalists ability to earn astronomical profits, term limits on congress, environmental regulations, and others. Many of which would be great in our current system. I feel Gaasvig had some compelling ideas and agree the current system has flaws but to say we have an unfettered capitalist system today I feel is short sighted. Those in power have gamed the system for their own personal interests leading to an altered capitalist system that is by no means unfettered. The Randoid in me also couldn't help but feel this is just innovation squashing Socialism by another name that would lead to a race to the bottom as the restrictions on the innovators and the guaranteed employment would tax the system to be able to provide all the benefits and rights it offers. I didn't agree with all of Gaasvig's ideas but still feel this is a critical read for anyone interested in alternatives to our current broken system.

I wish we could implement some of these ideas into our government right now. Excellent ideas - it makes sense that we should ALL vote. Don't be manipulated, your voice counts, vote and get involved. Democracy is for all of us, not just some of us. We cannot abdicate our rights, it does not serve us.

This book is so full of broad sweeping statements and virtually devoid of logic that it is painful to read. I wish it was more compelling but it is just repetitive. This authors view point is very black and white. Capitalists are greedy pigs and labourers are entitled to be given everything and obligated to do nothing. I have to say that I can't agree with these viewpoints. I think people need to earn and work for better opportunities in life, not be handed the same thing as the next person, no matter how skilled or lazy they become.

Pass the wealth, not the work. Pathetic socialism utopian nonsense. Pay all for showing up equally, skill, education and effort notwithstanding.
