Amazing book! Ralph Nader strikes again with his wisdom and intellect. The 17 Solutions addresses key issues that are hindering our nation from prospering and setting an example for the rest of the world. From white collar corruption to an over bloated military budget, to restoring public works programs, Ralph makes the case for the improvement of all these essential systems and offers his solutions on how to implement them. As I have read more about Ralph as well as listening to his weekly radio show, I have grown to respect him and his ideas more and more. And although I may not agree with everything he says, I respect his convictions. I am really sad that we had a chance to elect him as our president multiple times but have failed and instead sold out to the establishment candidates.

"Enlisting the enlightened super-rich" Yeah, riiiiiigggghhhtt, Ralph! The problem with Nader, and too, too many other activistis and pseudo-activists and quasi-activists, is that they never, ever take it to the next level --- what is the source of the problem? The super-rich, who have rigged everything to their favor and in their favor, from their ostensible conservation movement, whereby not only do they own the vast majority of the land, but now the public pays them for their owndership as they are declared public parks (until they decide to sell them off), or set-asides for conservation purposes, and so on. Who owns everything? Which individuals, or super-rich families, are the cause and primary source of the neverending problems, who owns the media, and on and on and on? Negative rating for a useless book. The "pseudo-environmentalist" answer to climate change: cap-and-trade, more free money for Wall Street and the oil companies, from a plan that originated in 1983 with the Reagan administration, naturally!
