|About the Book|
WHY DO WE NEED TO END NEOLIBERALISM?The current economic equilibrium allows the One Percent to profit from human and environmental destruction. Even if some business leaders wanted to do good, the legal and economic framework forces businesses to take advantage of an economic equilibrium that prices resources and labour too cheap to discard. This is the economic equilibrium left by decades of military and IMF interventions.HOW DO WE END NEOLIBERALISM?Prices need to reflect externalities and government must use its power to tax, regulate, and spend to foster an economic equilibrium that motivates businesses to produce real value. It is possible to have a peaceful and prosperous global economy. Entrepreneurs worldwide are coming up with some of the greatest innovations known to men that can push our economic potential while allowing us to live in harmony with the planet and ourselves. Unfortunately, these innovations cannot compete in a market where profitable corporations continue to be subsidized with trillions of dollars and military power.End Neoliberalism, Tax & Regulate The One Percent disarms Neoliberal myths such as trickle down economics, job creation, freedom from tyranny, and shows how corporations need and control big government through lobbysim, campaign financing, and revolving doors. The goal of this book is to create the intellectual framework that allows us to make good decisions about our future based on optimal solutions rather than invalid ideological fundamentals.
