What’s in it for me? Learn what is wrong with the American economy and why the tea party is not the solution.
We all live in a democracy, which is supposed to mean that the people are reigning. But when you think about it, do you really think that you and your fellow ones are the ones who decide where America is going? Probably not: in a recent poll, 77 percent of the US citizens polled said that too much power is in the hands of a few rich people and corporations.
Something has gotten out of balance in the American democracy and economy, the game has become rigged against the average US citizen while it favors the rich and global corporations. In this book, you’ll learn about what has gone wrong, how the Tea Party movement is making it worse and what can be done about it.
You’ll also find out:
- why the rich are effectively paying less income tax than the middle-class;
- what motivates the oil industry to donate $150 million every year on political campaigns; and
- why Henry Ford paid his workers three times more than other factory workers were paid.
