Synopsis

After One Hundred Years weaves the 20th century rise of large corporations, expansion of the federal government, and the growth of America's vibrant non-profit sector into an enjoyable epic that reveals how these developments affected the prosperity of the middle class and security of those in need. Improvements in nutrition, medical care, technology, and education are followed from 1900, when forty percent of American families lived in poverty, malnutrition was common, and one child in ten died before age one. Today's gaps in income, wealth, literacy and life expectancy also get thorough attention. This well-researched history is unique in its clarity about the vital role of business innovation and investment in the creation of new jobs, higher living standards, rising tax revenues, and improved money flows at non-profits. Kirkus Reviews praises After One Hundred Years as "cogent, well-constructed...deserves wide readership."

We suppress it by taking more of the profits in taxes.” Criticizing Keynesian economics or asserting that Roosevelt’s policies prolonged the Great Depression isn’t new, but Dunn’s coinage of “The Dark Age of American Innovation” should attract attention.
