Get the reviews of Arianna Huffington’s latest book, Third World America: How Our Politicians Are Abandoning the Middle Class and Betraying the American Dream.
Third World America is the latest book from Arianna Huffington. Some waves are being generated by Third World America in the blogosphere. Many challenges, facing the United States, from crumbling infrastructure to rising inequality & declining social mobility, and argues that the worldwide recession is not an one-off event but part of a general trend of increasing poverty and inequality in the country are highlighted by Huffington in her book.
This book is not an overstatement to say that middle-class Americans are an imperiled species and the American Dream of a safe, comfortable standard of living has become as outdated as an Edsel with an eight-track player. United States of America is in danger of becoming a third world nation. The evidence, all around is industrial base, which is vanishing, taking with it the kind of jobs that have formed the backbone of America’s economy for over a century. Education system of America is in muddle, making it harder for tomorrow’s workforce to get the information and training it desires to land good twenty-first century jobs.
Its infrastructure, roads, bridges, sewage and water, transportation and electrical systems is breaking up. Economic system of America has been reduced to recurring episodes of Corporations Gone Wild. Political system of America is out of order, in thrall to small fiscal elite using the power of the checkbook to control both parties. Arianna Huffington wrote in her book that America’s economic success and political stability, is speedily disappearing, and forcing people to face up to the fear that people are falling as a nation that their children and grandchildren will enjoy fewer opportunities and face a lower standard of living than they did.
With the must-read Huffington Post, Arianna Huffington has her finger on the pulse of America, unflinchingly tracks the gradual demise of America as an industrial, political, and economic leader and shows off the dark flipside of the American Dream. Through “Third World America”, she points fingers on names, and details about those people who are killing the American Dream.
According to Elizabeth Warren, “A voice of conscience in a time when we need conscience more than ever. . . Arianna Huffington is right: it’s not too late for citizens to wake up politicians or to take matters into their own hands. Time is short: read this book now.”
According to Rob Johnson, “Third World America is simultaneously hard-hitting and empathetic. It makes the case that, as the world’s largest economy fights to define its future, a viable middle-class is essential to our country’s well-being and something we should all fight to ensure.”
