As chapters carefully construct connections between banking processes and political influence, readers are treated to a discussion of not just how banks rule Washington but, more importantly, what can be done about it.
Each chapter of information concludes with a section questioning 'how do we get control,' and here's where the real meat of the title lies: in actionable reviews of processes backed by historical experience and political and economic savvy.
Take, for example, the chapter on education,which points out that a population educated enough to employ critical thinking processes is a threat to power. What's best for the future of America? Surprisingly, it may not lie in the concept of college educations for all:"Still think college for all is a good idea? Universities are currently failing a majority of their graduates. Why would we want to grow the number of young people with college debt and a degree that does not provide graduates with the skills they need to move into the workforce?"
Instead, the solution may lay in better preparations for economic success that link education to real-world achievements and takes elite and political control away from the process.Solutions recommended by the author range from deferred tuition with zero percent interest loans, eliminating course requirements not related to a field of study, to focusing on ONLY reading skills from kindergarten to grade 3, and revitalizing trade school programs.
Each chapter is packed with statistics, and each presents keys to making the kinds of changes at the local and political level that eliminate controllers from American society."What we think, what we are taught, what we are paid for our work, when and where we go to war, and who wins political office have all been staged bymen and women we have never heard of." It's time for a change. Mark Mullen's blueprint pinpoints problems across various sectors of society and, more importantly, offers a foundation for making these changes.
Who Controls America? is very highly recommended for social issues, political, economic, and American history collections and classes alike.

In Who Controls America? by Mark Mullen, the reader will understand who truly holds power in American society and it isn't the masses. The reader will understand why a handful of people can create wealth for themselves while plunging the entire nation into huge debt. This book unearths the inner game of manipulation and shows how banks and private institutions create situations that bring about economic depression, war, and poverty. American politics, the economy, educational system, and foreign policies are controlled by small groups, and these groups don't work for the interests of the common citizens. Mark Mullen's writing is very evocative and he uses a popular style that will appeal to a wide audience. This book gives clear answers to the many questions that are asked around the Trump conundrum, for example. It is ruthlessly honest and enlightening, the first book you should read if you want to understand political power and who wields it.
