This is a must-read book for concerned citizens throughout the world. It should be of particular interest to parents and grandparents, especially middle-class Americans. It is the first book of its kind to provide a global perspective of how the world works and has worked for over two thousand years through societies, governments, and businesses. Two new concepts are introduced—“The Character of Governments and Societies” and “Per Capita Income Distributed.”

The research and writings of more than eighty scholars, as well as thirty-two years of data from ninety-three countries are used in the research and explanation of the fundamental factors that influence human behavior and human development. The facts suggest that human development requires a stable and relatively balanced environment. The world today is neither stable nor well balanced, and the trend is not encouraging. In fact, the trend for the world and for the United States is toward rich and poor.

While dependency has historically been discussed in terms of poor countries and poor citizens, this book discusses critical and growing dependencies of the United States. The author offers strong evidence that many of these dependencies have developed due to the neo-conservative agenda of the past quarter century. In addition to explaining the risks of dependencies to the security, the economy, and the very democracy of the United States, the author presents a rational business plan for America’s future and for that of the world.
