In The Predicament, economist David L. Smith explains how the
present economic, financial and political dysfunctions emerged after
the relatively balanced and prosperous Eisenhower years. He reveals
"where the bodies are buried" and makes the case for a radical change of
direction to avoid further economic, financial and social
deterioration; to restore the solvency, prosperity and contentment of
the middle class; and to relieve the plight of the poor.
the root cause of the American Predicament as the hijacking of the
democratic political process by a rich and powerful elite, Mr. Smith
proposes a completely new democratic political process to bypass Big
Money and television to return the government to the service of We The People.
The Predicament second edition will be available after April 1 in e-book format, available for purchase ($4.99) at Amazon.com and all major e-book retail outlets. It will also be available in print format at major online bookstores and signed copies will be available on this website.
