Why do the rich get richer and the poor stay poor? How can we privatize publicly owned capital facilities so that employees and users own the stock? How can unions win ‘more’ for their members without rendering American employees uncompetitive? What steps can the government take to make every American economically independent? ‘Democracy and Economic Power’ aims to answer these questions and many more like them.
This essay, devoted to explaining the financed-capitalist plan, is an attempt to advance our practical thinking about capitalism. It does not add anything except evidence of feasibility to the theory of capitalism as outlined in our earlier book.
The Capitalist Manifesto is intended to replace the Communist Manifesto as a call to action, first of all in our own country, and then, with our country’s leadership, everywhere else in the world. It is our industrial power and capital wealth, together with our institutions of political liberty and justice, that make America the place where the capitalist revolution must first take place to establish economic liberty and justice for all.
This book aims at nothing less than the creation of a society free from poverty, war, and toil, and the authors argue that these goals can be achieved through such policies as the extension of property- holding and the reduction of taxes and government spending.
