America is becoming increasingly dysfunctional-massive debt, poor growth, a broken tax system, bloated government and runaway spending. This is due to the pursuit of goals based on wishful thinking rather than reality. The book uses basic reasoning to cut through the fog of current day political polemics and counterproductive ideological belief. The way to solve the country's problems and promote prosperity and freedom comes from wise government. Government that follows commonsense ecomics and understands how people are motivated to be responsible, self-reliant and productive. Government based on the proposition that we can all win together. The question is, are we smart eugh to choose that type of government?
David Lowry is a proven innovator at motivating people. His understanding of ways to promote productivity enabled him to build a company known for its employee morale, customer satisfaction and financial performance. In 1986, Inc. Magazine recognized the Company for its advanced management practices in its cover article. Dave received his MBA in economics and personnel management at the University of Oregon making him a proud Duck. (Who wouldn't be proud with a football team like theirs?) For over fifty years, Dave has had a keen interest in how government can protect personal freedom while efficiently increasing standards of living at all economic levels. Dave believes that if we are smart, we will employ reason over emotion and thereby produce the greatest benefit for all Americans.
