highly recommend reading Arianna Huffington’s book Third World America.  Even if you are not a liberal, it is easy to overlook her bias and see the statistics as useful information.  The numbers she use are undeniable in creating fear that a third world U.S. is not far away.

She spends the first half of the book providing data to support her thesis, like any good reporter.  While the numbers are scary to consider, she ends on a positive note.  The U.S. has always been an optimistic country in its youthful jubilation.  We are known as the melting pot – the country of opportunity.

The American spirit is irrepressible and will persevere through economic downturns and record high layoffs.  Entrepreneurship and compassion can save our country from the brink, is the last note of the book.

While I keep my political views to myself, I really enjoyed this book for its factual content.  The copy I read was from the library, http://vhealthportal.com/product-category/womens-health/, but this is one of the few books I would like to own and use as a reference … but then again, there is always the internet.
