Summary
"For decades, a Corporate Capitalism of top down mismanagement and backroom deal-making has smothered America's innovative spirit. The big, the corporate, and the status quo dominate at the expense of the small, new, entrepreneurial, and inventive. The result is that working- and middle-class Americans have seen their incomes flat-lining and their American Dreams slipping away. In response, David M. Smick calls for the great equalizer, a Main Street Capitalism of mass small-business startups and bottom-up innovation, all unfolding on a level playing field."--Dust jacket.
