Perfect Complement to Lou Dobbs’ Own Book,

November 16, 2006
Thom Hartmann

Edit of 21 July 2009 to add links.

This book is a perfect complement to Lou Dobbs’ own book on War on the Middle Class: How the Government, Big Business, and Special Interest Groups Are Waging War on the American Dream and How to Fight Back and is also better in the single specific area where this author chooses to focus: on the middle class. The book by Lou Dobbs is the best book over-all, covering a number of topics related to the health of U.S. society and the economy, while this author focuses exclusively on the middle class.

If I were to recommend one other book, it would be Naomi Klein’s No Logo: No Space, No Choice, No Jobs which discusses how individual citizens can track the abusive practices and behavior of corporations, and the multitude of individuals can punish them through simple boycotts of their products.

There is no question in my mind but that We the People will take back the power, this book, and Lou Dobbs’ book, represent the end of an era of unquestioned repression and abuse of America’s middle class and blue-collar labor force, and the beginning of a revolution that the banks and corporations will NOT be able to squelch.
