America the Possible: Manifesto for a New Economy

Progressive. Certain readers will pick up a book because of the word “manifesto” on the cover, while others will see the word and run away. Environmental reformer James Gustave Speth broadens his thinking beyond the environment in his book, America the Possible: Manifesto for a New Economy. He describes the crisis he sees in the United States, and proposes concrete reforms that will make us a stronger democracy. He calls for a transformation in some basic aspects of what he calls America’s operating system. In some respects, his case is for a revival of the progressive movement. Speth offers a hopeful vision of what engaged citizens can create when working together. Readers interested in public policy are those most likely to enjoy this book, whether attracted or repelled by the word “manifesto.” Rating: Three-star (Recommended) Click here to purchase America the Possible from
