I'm acquainted with this theory and what it's based in. Another good book about what's happening and the direction our world is going was better covered in Shock Doctrine by Naomi Kline. I have no interest in a simplistic and flawed argument supporting Corporatism; which is all this is. The 'carrot and stick' here is simple: If you want to eat you will need to surrender your rights as a citizen and humanity to the Capitalist God or you will die. That's all. Any delusion one might have about this theory being about 'job creation' is based in stupidity...an abundant American trait. Remember that this started when our so-called leaders legislated Corporations the right to operate without national alliance, take American tax payer money and ship their factories over seas and use your tax dollar to take away your job and make you compete for less money so they'd have it all. And it worked because they now do in fact have it all. It's not "da govment"; it's the lack of Government protecting the interests of our country and it's citizens and our Constitution in favor of their lesser gods on Wall Street that caused this "War for Jobs" which pits humanity into a struggle for survival against each other; with prison labor in China competing against us and the rest of the world while private prisons are being built in the U.S. to do the same. This book is for Sheep...better known as the average American. We're getting what we deserve. That "Shining City On A Hill" that Reagan described as America was never anything but a gated community for the richest 1% and it's here now and you voted for it and this book is the hook and worm you will swallow while you become nothing but an indentured servant and your children end up working for private prison industry. (Don't believe me? CNBC crows long and loud about how much profit private prisons in America have to make and just where do you think that profit comes from?) Skip this book and read Shock Doctrine. It's already too late but at lease you'll understand the screwing we and our children are about to suffer as we participate in the end of America. It's already happened.
