Publisher Comments:

In this third volume of his award-winning American Crisis series, James Gustave Speth makes his boldest and most ambitious contribution yet. He looks unsparingly at the sea of troubles in which the United States now finds itself, charts a course through the discouragement and despair commonly felt today, and envisions what he calls America the Possible, an attractive and plausible future that we can still realize.

The book identifies a dozen features of the American political economyand#8212;the country's basic operating systemand#8212;where transformative change is essential. It spells out the specific changes that are needed to move toward a new political economyand#8212;one in which the true priority is to sustain people and planet. Supported by aand#160;compelling "theory of change" that explains how system change can come to America, the book also presents a vision of political, social, and economic life in a renewed America. Speth envisions a future that will be well worth fighting for. In short, this is a book about the American future and the strong possibility that we yet have it in ourselves to use our freedom and our democracy in powerful ways to create something fine, a reborn America, for our children and grandchildren.

Synopsis:

Manifesto for a new economy and a new politics

Synopsis:

Why the crisis in which America finds itself demands a new "operating system"

I've not read the book, only his article about it. I'm 9 years older than Gus, but can't recall having heard of him. It's about time someone gave us a coherent account of the way toward an economy that's not obsessed with growth!
