If you ever needed ammunition to support your case that equitable income distributions are essential for our families, for our friends, for our nation, for our world, you will find it here. Within these pages you will find surprises and a story not told elsewhere. The central economic story of our time is how the United States went from equitable distributions that existed from the 1950s through 1970s to its current state of maldistribution. The prevailing economic theories that financial and monetary manipulations can be corrective in spite of profound maldistribution are proven wrong here. It is perilous to presuppose that such theories can produce a thriving economy when the majority have plainly been harmed to benefit the few. Even if one were to have unstoppable misanthropic tendencies, the data is so plainly clear and obvious that pure pragmatism mandates fixes. This is not a book about whining. It is a book about answers, reasons, and demonstrations. This unabridged version is 345 pages (excluding appendix and endnotes); the condensed version, 195 pages. The condensed version does not include Chapters 4, 5, 7, 8 and 9, which deal primarily with economics and U.S. history. Otherwise the two are identical.
