The United States Government The Promise of Democracy and the Economy Book Description:

Did you ever get the sense that all of the good and noble things your United States Government does are not being publicized? Finally, someone has told the story of the United States Government in a writing style anyone can understand. There's so much good your United States Government does, and this book was written to tell you about it. Further, with the election of President Biden and Vice President Harris, progressives and Democrats now have a chance to unite and heal our nation, with many economic and social reforms, after four years of incompetency, corruption, ludicrous decisions and outright cruelty by the Trump Administration. Biden, Harris and the Democrats have won: the interregnum - a period where your federal government was absent - is over, and now it's time to resume the New Progressive Era. In The United States Government - the Promise of Democracy and the Economy - editor and public policy professional Joseph Lazzaro describes how a proactive federal government through progressive policies can solve economic and social problems, achieve the common good and the national interest. This book is a roadmap, a practical guide for progressive change: Lazzaro describes 25 issues / problems that need to be addressed and why progressives / Democrats have the better solution - the stronger philosophical argument. In addition, the book features 24 Profiles of interesting people, events and places in American history - stories that deserved to be told. There's also a 100-question Trivia Test that will challenge and educate you, and 3 sections on Presidential Humor.No, this is not an encyclopedia - far from it! Lazzaro advocates the progressive / Democratic point-of-view, and he's direct and right out front with it. He provides evidence to support his argument, and then says, "Here - you decide." And, as President John F. Kennedy did during his 1,000 days in office, the author makes the case that an activist U.S. Government, led by the Democratic Party, can solve economic and social problems, and in doing so advance civilization. Whether you're a big fan of politics, economics, civics, social studies, history or not, this book describes the United States Government in an easy-to-understand vocabulary. Simply, that's called an essential.
