THE RACE: What’s wrong with capitalism and how to fix it
by Luther Wissa (Author)
We all dream of the day when the majority of Americans own their own homes. A day when families are healthy, and children are loved and valued. We dream of a country where people work 20 instead of 60 hours a week to make a living. We want to feel fulfilled at our jobs. We dream of an America where we have time for each other and for relationships. We would hope it to be a time when the family is strong once more. Surely this is an impossible dream?
The sad reality is that we are headed in the opposite direction. We are headed into a “nightmare America” where a mere tenth of people own all property, an America where children get fewer and fewer opportunities and suffer greater mental health and behavioral issues. We are headed into an America where work is ever more meaningless, and to make a living you must work 80 or 100 hours a week.
What can we do to prevent a culture ruled by the “Gospel of Greed” from imploding? Luther Wissa believes he has a new way forward. It is radical, it is neither Republican nor Democrat, left nor right, purely Christian nor atheist, and communist nor capitalist. It is a new way rather than a middle way. However, this new way could it be the only way out for a collapsing economy and society riddled with the consequences of years of corruption. There is no compromise to be made. Can Americans make this change, lead the world out of crisis and make the impossible dream possible?

Is capitalism a "good" thing? Is it fixable? Can it work for large groups of people with different income and workng habits and motivations? "The Race" does a great job of teaching the economics behind capitalism and ways it does not work and does work. Very educational.

I've been a doubter of modern capitalism for many years. This book punctuated everything I suspected. That it offers a solution for fixing the problem is laudable. The author writes well and organizes the information efficiently to explain how capitalism got so out of hand in America. A very interesting read.
