The noise from both Washington and the media is deafening, the deeds of our lawmakers alarming. America needs a break from the posturing and the politicking. We need information: how we got here and where we are headed. Catherine Crier, one of the most respected figures in television journalism, presents an incisive, unbiased analysis of America's political crisis-delivering a message we cannot afford to ignore. America must move beyond political parties to invest in our nation's future. Not just with money, but with vision, wisdom, and reason. Looking back at the foundations of our country, from Adam Smith to Alexander Hamilton, from Jefferson to Roosevelt, Crier cuts through the nonsense to show what really works and what doesn't work for our nation today, including: -The staggering disconnect between the financial health of corporations and the well-being of consumers that defies everything Adam Smith wrote about free enterprise. -The role that government must play in regulations and job creation-and how the Republican Party's anti-government rhetoric would appall the founders of American conservatism. -Why our health care system is not the best in the world, but the most mismanaged and bloated, and how to change it. -How today's vitriolic partisan politics are in direct opposition to the very democracy on which our country is founded.
