The American economy is stalled because American business and political leaders are ignoring the one force that could truly re-energize their companies and the economy--the poor. The massive economic energy and potential of the poor, the working poor, and the struggling middle class has been left on the sidelines. Bryant's stirring book shows how this came to be, and lays out some simple ideas for making the economy work again--for everyone.The poor are not stupid or lazy, but they know when the system is stacked against them. As wealth inequality has widened, more and more of the middle class have slipped into the poor working class or the unemployed. Business loans, home loans, and financial investment have disappeared from poor communities. The path back to the middle class has disappeared.Ironically, as wealth inequality has widened, even the wealthiest have seen their fortunes shrink. There simply are not enough customers to grow business and make people rich. When business leaders step up and realize that they can help themselves by helping raise others out of poverty, we'll be well on our way to restoring the American Dream of equal economic opportunity.
