In the game Monopoly the winner is the one with the most money. The other players are broke, or nearly so. In real life, the share of America’s wealthiest has grown, while 80 percent of its citizens increasingly struggle with economic uncertainty. Among developed nations, American income inequality ranks close to the top. Extreme inequality threatens Americans’ welfare, their environment and even their democracy. The American dream of opportunities for all has been hijacked by, “large corporations, Wall Street, and very wealthy individuals,” claims Robert Reich. Additionally, such conditions are, “no more in their interest than in the interests of the rest of the population, because under such conditions an economy and a society cannot survive.” Our country is ailing, but we can fix it. This quick-reading, yet enlightening, book tells how our democracy broke, explains our current peril, and shows how we can restore American democracy to our people.
