Overview

A factual guide to understanding how political policies impact the economy, the individual voters, and the future of the United States. Economic indicators from 1900 to 2010 from reliable sources provide an in depth look at the United States economy for the past one hundred ten years. This allows voters to quickly analyze how the economy responded to different policies and worldwide events.

An analysis of tax systems proposed by presidential candidates and how they impact individual voters at various income levels. An in depth analysis of health care and energy policies in the United States for voters to better understand these complicated issues and promote intelligent long term strategies for success. This book gives voters the same facts Senators and Representatives use to analyze the past and decide the best choices for thefuture of the United States. Empowered and knowledgeable voters will be able to verify or dispute the arguments presented in the current political debates and elect politicians that understand the facts and are working toward the long term growth and stability of the United States.
Money and special interests in politics have distorted the facts in order to support their opinions. It is time for voters and politicians to use the facts to develop strategies that will ensure the long term stability and growth of the United States. This book uses easy to understand color graphs and tables to educate voters about many difficult issues and allow them to understand the facts and how policies have impacted the economy and the voter individually. It is time for voters to demand that policies are created from facts, not facts created from desired policies.

With lower tax rates the growth rate of Gross Domestic Product declined by 21%.
The unemployment rate increased by 22%.
Meanwhile, the growth rate of the Dow Jones Industrial Average increased by 368%
Low taxes stimulated the stock market, but not jobs or economic activity in America.
NAFTA and free trade agreements increased the trade imbalance, and reduced U.S. exports.
Poor people pay a larger percentage in total taxes than the very richest in America.

Meet the Author

Eric Wilson is a resident of Utah. I have a degree in accounting. I have 14 years of banking experience culminating as the accounting manager of a Utah credit union. I am a licensed real estate broker. I own and manage a small property maintenance company with five employees. I have two great kids. I love to play ultimate Frisbee. I like to fix up old homes. I like numbers and facts which is part of why I wrote this book. I am nobody special, just somebody that wanted answers, for a change. My accounting and business experience prove that without facts, and policies based on facts, my business will fail. The United States is no different, without policies based on facts our country will fail.
Fellow Americans, we cannot afford to fail.
