The average American earns just $33,000 per year and this income has remained unchanged over the past 20 years. Fifty million Americans live in poverty and rely on food stamps to stave off hunger. More than 67,000 veterans are homeless. The authors offer a 12-point poverty-to-prosperity manifesto to restore "humanity" to their nation. Useful lessons for neighbours too.

"When people are starving, when people have no hope, democracy is threatened. An external threat is not our major concern. It's the internal rot that's ominously heading the country toward the point of no return." (p. 126)
