Since the mid-twentieth century, free-market ideology has undermined the economic well-being and social fabric of American life. An unprecedented, extremely effective and largely invisible effort by a small network of billionaires and corporate capitalists has mesmerized Americans with the narrative that the selfish pursuit of personal wealth will benefit everyone. As a result, our public policies have increased poverty, devastated the environment, hollowed out the middle class, and inflamed divisions throughout our society.
In REBOOTING CAPITALISM Anthony Biglan presents an evolutionary analysis of capitalism and draws on his deep understanding of human behavior to present a forceful, inspiring, and actionable plan to reshape our economic system to ensure that all members of society thrive. Building on his last book, The Nurture Effect, he presents a comprehensive, evidence-based approach for addressing our most urgent problems and evolving a society that works for all.
