Publisher's Summary

Conservative icon Steve Forbes returns with his most powerful and provocative ideas yet.

The United States has been through one of the most tumultuous decades in recent history. Polls show people on both sides of the ideological divide believe that the country has gone off track. If something isn't done quickly, Americans face a bleak future - continuing decline and disarray in a world that grows ever more dangerous.

Steve Forbes, two-time candidate for the GOP presidential nomination and Forbes Media Chairman, explains how today's malaise has been caused by years of Obama's destructive policies, a broken tax system, and the Federal Reserve's Soviet-style controls over credit and money.

The problems are challenging. But Forbes tells us that with the right policies, the country can bounce back faster than people think. In this compelling and much-needed book, he sets forth a three-part plan to revive America.

Patient-driven health care: The problem with health care, Forbes says, is that Big Government, health insurance companies, and employers are in control, not you, the patient. The key to getting high-quality, affordable health care is increasing competition and choice - and putting patients in charge.

Enact a flat tax: Today's complex, corrupt tax code must be scrapped. The best answer is a simple flat tax. Forbes shows how this very bold reform would free America from the IRS and unleash an unprecedented wave of prosperity.

A sound dollar as good as gold: With its ever-fluctuating "fiat" dollar, the Federal Reserve has blocked a real recovery and is the prime cause of today's stagnant, crisis-ridden economy. The answer? Take the dollar out of the hands of the Washington politicians by returning to a monetary system with the value of the dollar linked to gold.

A clear and vital guide, Reviving America shows how the United States can recover the optimism and entrepreneurial dynamism that made it the greatest nation in history. These are 21st-century solutions - not the failed ideas of the recent past. Forbes offers specific ideas and plans, not generalities and bromides, and is challenging policy makers to do the same.

Book nails what is hammering our economy!

I loved the WAY this book lays out in layman terms the three most important items to traumatically revive our ailing economy. In order of priority: Healthcare, taxation and monetary policy. WAY TO GO!!!

Feasible solutions.

Very technical. Some concepts were difficult to understand. A few parts were nearly ranting at gov'ts incompetence, and I agree. All in all, a well organized, moderatey explained description and anecdote for our current economic woes.
