Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references (pages 205-215) and index.
Formatted Contents Note: Growth is (almost) everything -- The illusion of certainty -- The economy's turbocharger -- Top-down frustration in a bottom-up world -- The world's greatest wager -- It's nobody's century (or maybe everybody's) -- Americans are fighters -- A nation of dreamers and discoverers.
Summary, etc.: For decades, a Corporate Capitalism of top down mismanagement and backroom deal-making has smothered America's innovative spirit. The big, the corporate, and the status quo dominate at the expense of the small, new, entrepreneurial, and inventive. The result is that working- and middle-class Americans have seen their incomes flat-lining and their American Dreams slipping away. In response, David M. Smick calls for the great equalizer, a Main Street Capitalism of mass small-business startups and bottom-up innovation, all unfolding on a level playing field.
