First Edition
THIS NEW EDITION of Return to First Principles is full of updated information. The book explains why the nation’s banking system continues to operate on the margin and much of corporate America is fragile.
Large numbers of American families still function in chaos and whirl. The nation’s economy is brittle and much of the country’s government is corrupt.
The text contains new information as to the cause of the September 2008 financial meltdown which resulted in the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. This book defines what First Principles are, introduces a new political ‘ism’ and explores a number of ways as to how the nation can repair itself-namely by Returning to First Principles."
