Description
							Peter Georgescu and other fellow farsighted millionaires and billionaires are not afraid "of Al Qaeda or the vicious Islamic State or some other evolving radical group" but "of where income inequality will lead." Georgescu believes that the capitalism that allowed a penniless refugee like him to rise to the top no longer exists. In this book, he vividly depicts the damage that income inequality is doing and examines the trends and developments that have led to our current crisis. He argues to his fellow capitalists that they are best positioned to fix this problem because they can directly address it by looking beyond maximizing the short-term profits their shareholders demand toward serving the interests of all, including their employees, customers, society, and the environment.
Reviews

"Peter Georgescu has written a clear-eyed assessment about the drivers of key national challenges like income inequality and shrinking economic opportunity. He offers a number of thoughtful prescriptions for change, all aimed at the worthiest of goals - restoring the viability of the American Dream. I applaud and commend his efforts." - Roger W. Ferguson, former Vice Chairman, US Federal Reserve System
