Publisher's Summary

The author of America's Hidden Success launches a daring and appealing political and economic plan to restore American unity and prosperity. Today, bitter partisanship has sunk our politics into unending stalemate, millions of Americans are struggling to get ahead financially, and cynicism about the effectiveness and fairness of our political processes grows continually deeper. The country needs practical, principled, and unifying solutions, rather than continued finger-pointing across the aisle.

Utopia re-visited.

What disappointed you about Common Credo?

The concept at the surface seemed to portend a meaningful, objective, and reality-based treatise. None of the above!

What do you think your next listen will be?

I may go back to some of Mark Levin's work or perhaps the Federalist Papers

Which scene was your favorite?

I found no redeeming element to the work outside of Professor Schwarz' writing style. He does describe his views in a clear manner.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Common Credo?

I'm ashamed to say that the book, as far as I permitted myself to carry on my end of the conversation, had no one "scene" that I would change. I wouldn't undertake so frustrating a task. I would have returned the transcript to the author and asked him to "Get Real" with his thesis and hie prescriptions.

Any additional comments?

The was the worst download I have made in the years of my subscription. The professor clearly believes that government can police his Utopian notions of what is right and therefore should be a partner in creating his version of an ideal future. He believes the government could decide the level of the living wage, the level of executive pay as a function of worker pay, create safe working conditions, decide what constitutes appropriate attempts on a citizen's part in preparing to be valuable to an employer, He somehow comes to a conclusion that workers should share in the value of productivity improvement while disregarding the value of capital that produced the vast majority of such improvement. This he does while wringing his literary hands over the inadequacy of worker skill level. The list goes on.
