Insightful and well written. Bahnsen promotes a deeply moral argument where he contends that Washington, Wall Street and Main Street USA are all culpable for the financial crisis and that a cultural decline in moral principles and personal character are a root cause for our political and economic ills. The book sets forth a practical argument in that the most effective way to fix our cultural woes is to take responsibility for our individual actions rather than play the polarizing blame game.
