America the Possible: Manifesto for a New Economy

In America the Possible: Manifesto for a New Economy, James Gustave Speth, former F&ES Dean and professor of law at Vermont Law School, shows that America is plagued by ill health, a ravaged natural environment, conflict over scarce resources, destruction of the social fabric, ignorance, poverty and frequent war. He demands that Americans reconsider their most cherished assumptions—starting with the idea that economic growth is always good—and participate in the overhaul of the country’s political and economic systems to renew America. America the Possible is published by Yale University Press (http://yalepress.yale.edu/yupbooks).
