More than ever, America needs fresh ideas--and bold solutions. Now, Ralph Nader--perhaps our last great civic idealist--offers seventeen ideas to rescue our country from corruption, complacency, and corporate domination. America is in crisis. After enduring two decade-long wars and a devastating financial meltdown, We the People have been abandoned by the leaders we elected to serve our interests. Now, in response to our desperate times, pioneering reformer Ralph Nader offers a new program of seventeen ambitious but common-sense solutions to our chronic economic and social problems. Among them: Reforming the tax system Making our communities more self-reliant Reclaiming science and technology for the people Protecting the family Getting corporations off welfare Creating national charters for corporations Reducing our bloated military budget Organizing congressional watchdog groups Enlisting the enlightened super-rich Nader offers a stark assessment of our shared straits, but his solutions constitute an eye-opening plan to save America--before it's too late.
