Democracy at Risk
Rescuing Main Street From Wall Street : A Populist Vision for the Twenty-first CenturyBook - 2000
The year 2000 is the first election year of the twenty- first century. For attorney-activist Jeff Gates, it represents the ideal occasion to own up to the failings of our political system and to pursue a more inclusive national agenda that corrects what he shows are severe threats to democracy, free enterprise and the environment. Citing alarming statistics, Gates convincingly argues that the current boom is largely a mirage, buoyed by policies that continue to reward the wealthy and punish the poor. With equal measures of passion and incisive reasoning drawn from a career in national politics and corporate finance, he proposes an ambitious yet practical program of financial, political, and economic reform. Democracy at Risk is a call-to-arms for any aspiring leader or concerned citizen who wants to create and participate in a better future.
