Political Malpractice in America
Republic at Risk
About the Book
America is more divided now than at any time since the Civil War; survival of the republic is at real risk. Americans are losing confidence in the future and have almost no trust in our federal government. Our federal government has failed to respond effectively to the Covid-19 pandemic to arrest transmission and restart the economy. At the same time, we are seeing historic, widespread protests against systemic racism in America, which in itself is a manifestation of increasing inequality, as well as deep cultural bias. Our political leaders have failed us for the last forty years.
Randall L. Hull proposes that startling thesis in this economic and political commentary that examines how we’ve arrived at this crisis and what we can do to reverse the political and cultural warfare that pervades our republic. He answers questions such as:
• What steps can we take to reduce divisiveness in America?
• How can we restore shared prosperity to the majority of Americans and rebuild our middle class?
• How can we get politicians to work on a bipartisan basis again?
Hull offers starting points to pursue a model of “balanced capitalism” based on large private-public partnerships to rebuild American infrastructure and new green energy capacity; such investments will both reduce disparities of wealth and begin to reverse damage from climate change. He also proposes ways to safeguard our elections and live up to the ideals of our founding fathers, the most important initiative of all.
Find out how to keep working to “form a more perfect union” and fight political hypocrisy with the insights and ideas in Political Malpractice in America.
