Overview

Our political and financial systems, and particularly the latter, have fallen so short of expectations they deserve to be questioned.

The United States is experiencing a very serious disruption of its economy that will affect every other segment of human affairs and endeavors. The universal question is: how did this happen? "Oh the World Owes Us a Living" notes some of the causes, but more importantly, suggests what we can do to correct long-standing abuses to our economic and political systems. For decades these abuses have been controlled by special interest groups. Author Carlton Laird provides the tools needed for the public to take back their government through voter initiative. According to Laird, the public needs to be in command of their financial system. It should be viewed as part of the public domain. This is the only way that the monstrous public debt can be eliminated. Although we have never had a true, fully-operative democracy, it is still possible to have a government of, by, and for the people.
