Description

Consumer advocate, activist, humanitarian, and former presidential candidate Ralph Nader is arguably the most provocative and important progressive voice in America today-a fearless reformer whom The Atlantic named one of the 100 most influential figures in American history. In these troubling times of intractable fiscal and social distress, Nader offers a new program to help rescue America: The Seventeen Solutions. His powerful, paradigm-shifting proposals address some of the most pressing concerns in our country today-from corporate crime to tax reform to health care and housing-and they should find a receptive audience not only among liberals, progressives, disillusioned Democrats, Rachel Maddow fans, and Occupy Wall Street supporters, but all concerned Americans.

Review quote

It will be very good for the country if Nader's revelations shock a new generation. This book is a subversive primer that should be read in every high school civics class. -- William Greider, The Nation

Back cover copy

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-richNader offers a stark assessment of our shared straits, but his solutions constitute an eye-opening plan to save America--before it's too late.
