Third world America -- Nightmare on Main Street -- America the beautiful [strike through] dilapidated -- CSI USA: Who killed the American dream? -- Saving ourselves from a third world future
The United States of America is in danger of becoming a Third World nation. The evidence is all around us: Our industrial base is vanishing, taking with it the jobs that have formed the backbone of our economy; our education system is in shambles, making it harder for tomorrow's workforce to land good 21st century jobs; our infrastructure is crumbling; our economic system has been reduced to recurring episodes of Corporations Gone Wild; our political system is in thrall to a small financial elite using the power of the checkbook to control both parties. Our children and grandchildren will enjoy fewer opportunities and face a lower standard of living than we did. Finally, she shows what we need to do to stop our freefall.--From publisher description
