In THE CRASH OF 2015, radio personality Thom Hartmann describes a country not on the road to future collapse, but in the midst of one that could make the Great Depression seem like child's play.
With our government captured by corporate interests, Hartmann argues that the once-unique American political and economic culture has been manipulated to ensure the success of only 2% of the population at the expense of the rest of us - a "for the rich, by the rich" system that is turning our Democracy into something resembling an ancient feudal kingdom, and leading to policies that only benefit the highest bidder at the expense of the majority of Americans.
The Crash of 2015 refers to the social and economic disruption that will be brought about by a spike or collapse in oil prices, a failed euro, and an even more dramatic divergence between economic expectations and realities. It will almost certainly ultimately involve war, and will provoke a crisis in governance similar to what ripped our nation apart during the Civil War.
But a backlash is now palpable - a backlash against the Banksters, Oligarchs, and Economic Royalists like Milton Friedman, Lewis F. Powell, Alan Greenspan, Ronald Reagan, Jude Wannitsky, Roger Ailes, the Koch brothers, and others who have plunged our nation into economic chaos and social instability.
Like the previous crashes of 1770, 1856, and 1929, the Crash of 2015 will redefine American culture and gives us an opportunity to embrace the moral motive over the profit motive, and to rebuild an economic model that once yielded great success. The endgame could be a long, slow decline into Third World status and oligarchy, or possibly a sudden, violent response. Or, if we wake up soon enough, it could lead to a rebuilding period that will make our nation stronger.
THE CRASH OF 2015 lays out the choices that Americans must make now to ensure that the dream of prosperity can live on for future generations.
One of our most influential progressive voices tells the story of the hollowing of the American middle class and lays out the choices that we must make now to ensure that the dream of prosperity can live on for generations.
