One of our most influential progressive voices tells the story of the hollowing of the American middle class and lays out the choices that we must make to ensure that the dream of prosperity can live on for generations. -- In The Crash of 2016, Thom Hartmann describes a country not on the road to collapse but in the midst of an economic implosion that could make the Great Depression seem like small potatoes. Our once-enlightened political and economic systems have been manipulated to ensure the success of only a fraction of the population at the expense of the rest, a ''for the rich, by the rich'' system that is turning our democracy into an ancient feudal kingdom and leading to policies that only benefit the highest bidder. A backlash is now palpable -- against the banksters, oligarchs, and economic royalists like Milton Friedman, Lewis F. Powell, Alan Greenspan, Ronald Reagan, Jude Wanniski, Roger Ailes, the Koch brothers, and others who have plunged our nation into economic chaos and social instability. But like the previous crashes of 1770, 1856, and 1929, the Crash of 2016 will give us the chance to once again embrace the moral motive over the profit motive and to rebuild an economic model that has always yielded great success. Thoroughly researched and passionately argued, The Crash of 2016 assures us that if the right reforms are enacted we can avert disaster and make our nation whole again.

Review:

''Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren.'' --John Perkins, New York Times bestselling author
