Publisher's Summary

Andy Puzder, the former CEO of Carl's Jr. and Hardee's, says that "capitalism" is not a dirty word, and thankfully President Trump understands this; his pro-business policies will bring back economic growth and secure our future.

As a successful CEO in the restaurant industry, Andy Puzder uniquely understands how important the profit motive is to our country's ultimate prosperity. Furthermore, as the grandson of immigrants, the son of a car salesman, and someone who worked his way up from earning minimum wage to running an international business, he has a first-hand view of how America's exceptional capitalist spirit can lift everyone to success.

In 2016, the American people faced a stark choice between two very different presidential candidates. Hillary Clinton spent most of her adult life involved in politics and promised to uphold and advance the progressive legacy of President Barack Obama who had first won the White House on promises to "spread the wealth around." Donald Trump, on the other hand, came from the business world, was an unapologetic capitalist, used his own personal wealth as inspiration, and promised simply to "Make America Great Again."

By choosing Trump over Clinton, the American people put a stop to decades of government expansion under progressive leadership, and they might just have saved our economy by doing so.

America was once a land where everyone was encouraged to seek their fortune - the more prosperous our citizens, the more our whole society could in turn prosper. But leftist forces in the United States have been seeking to tarnish the pursuit of prosperity and to paint profit as an evil motivation fit only for greedy plutocrats.

Andrew Puzder understands this first-hand after a progressive smear campaign stopped him from joining President Trump's cabinet. As Puzder explains in his new book, The Capitalist Comeback, this was an act of desperation from a left wing facing irrelevance with a pro-business president in the White House. From its roots in the Progressive Era to labor unions to education to entertainment to its political resurgence with avowed socialist candidates such as Bernie Sanders, Puzder traces the development of the anti-profit forces in the United States and shows how, under President Trump, they can be vanquished for good.

Critic Reviews

"The Capitalist Comeback gives a vociferous and much-needed moral, philosophical, and economic defense of capitalism, which is under siege by a variety of left-wing interest groups. While the Trump Administration has rolled back some of the overregulation and overtaxation that prevents ordinary people from becoming extraordinary, only widespread recognition of capitalism's role in creating opportunity for everyone - especially those who need it most - will ensure America's continued success in the 21st century and beyond. Given his decades of leadership in the private sector and being on the receiving end of an ugly, coordinated left-wing attack, Andy Puzder understands this fight better than anyone and is the perfect messenger to deliver this vital message." (Bernie Marcus, co-founder of Home Depot)

"Hooray! Capitalism and free markets are making a big comeback in America under Donald Trump. Andy Puzder, a chief advisor to Trump during the campaign, explains how and why it's working. Finally, a book about America with a happy ending." (Stephen Moore, senior economic advisor to the Trump campaign and Heritage Foundation economist)

"Before he was one of America's must successful restaurant CEOs, Andy Puzder earned an hourly wage working his way through school while raising a family. This makes his insights all the more important. Free market capitalism benefits everyone-worker and owner alike. The Capitalist Comeback is a much-needed antidote to the socialism of the Bernie Sanders-Elizabeth Warren Left." (Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House)

A breath of fresh air!

This book is a well researched and effectively Presented argument in the defense of Capitalism from a historic and present perspective. He starts with the economic systems of feudalism in Europe and the emergence of the American colonies and theAmerican experiment in free government and capitalism which created the Most prosperous nation in the world and then shows how spread of American capitalism has raised prosperity across the world since then. Event goes to show the rise of progressive ism in the United States in American Politics. He then describes how the current political atmosphere a progressive is I'm is waging war against Donald Trump because of their fears of donald trump's success showing Americans that capitalism works over socialism. The book is well worth the time and money invested in it.

Ugh

If you want to listen 12 hours of how awesome Capitalism is and the downright evil of Socialism, then this is the book for you! Puzder does a fantastic job of being blind to capitalism’s shortcoming while focusing with fervor on socialism’s. Only time will tell if he is right in his feeling that Donald Trump is the best thing since sliced bread for America.

The narrator really nailed the condescending arrogant tone of Puzder, his delivery was great. Very well spoke James Edward Thomas.
