Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The national bestseller, described by Tom Brokaw as the “wake-up call we cannot ignore,” with a new preface by the author

Acclaimed by all sides of the political spectrum, Peter Peterson's Running on Empty not only traces the deterioration of Americas finances but offers solutions. This national bestseller is required reading for everyone concerned with Americas long-term economic survival. In clear and concise prose, Peterson offers America not only a vision but the practical steps by which to ensure our childrens economic future. Running on Empty is not only a warning, it is also a manifesto calling for the next administration to finally confront a deep and disturbing problem that politicians of all parties have insisted on ignoring for too long.

Synopsis:

Peterson--a lifelong Republican, chairman of the Blackstone Group, and former secretary of commerce under Nixon--reports that Republicans and Democrats alike have mortgaged America's future through reckless tax cuts, out-of-control spending and Enron-style accounting in Congress. In this book, he sounds the warning bell and prescribes a set of detailed solutions.
