Reform in these vital areas is essential if we are to overcome today’s dysfunction and divisions. It is the only way to a more prosperous future.

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 Healthcare: The problem with healthcare, 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 healthcare 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.

 

Steve Forbes is Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Media.

The company encompasses ForbesLife, Forbes Europe, Forbes Asia and Forbes licensee editions published in over 37 countries. The company also publishes a number of investment newsletters.

Forbes.com reaches nearly 70 million users each month.

The company’s flagship publication, Forbes, is the nation’s leading business magazine, with a circulation of more than 900,000.

A widely respected economic prognosticator, Mr. Forbes is the only writer to have won the highly prestigious Crystal Owl Award four times. The prize was formerly given by U.S. Steel Corporation to the financial journalist whose economic forecasts for the coming year proved most accurate.

In both 1996 and 2000, Mr. Forbes campaigned vigorously for the Republican nomination for the presidency. Key to his platform were a flat tax, medical savings accounts, a new Social Security system for working Americans, parental choice of schools for their children, term limits and a strong national defense. Mr. Forbes continues to energetically promote this agenda.

Mr. Forbes’ book, Money: How the Destruction of the Dollar Threatens the Global Economy – and What We Can Do About It, co-authored by Elizabeth Ames (McGraw-Hill Professional), was published in June 2014 and received the coveted Leonard E. Read Book Award.

His other books include Freedom Manifesto: Why Free Markets are Moral and Big Government Isn’t, co-authored by Elizabeth Ames (Crown Business, August 2012); How Capitalism Will Save Us: Why Free People and Free Markets Are the Best Answer in Today’s Economy, co-authored by Elizabeth Ames (Crown Business, November 2009); and Power Ambition Glory: The Stunning Parallels between Great Leaders of the Ancient World and Today…and the Lessons You Can Learn, co-authored by John Prevas (Crown Business, June 2009). He also wrote: Flat Tax Revolution: Using a Postcard to Abolish the IRS (Regnery, 2005); and A New Birth of Freedom (Regnery, 1999), a book of bold ideas for the new millennium.

In 1985, President Reagan names Mr. Forbes Chairman of the bi-partisan Board for International Broadcasting (BIB). In this position, he oversaw the operations of Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty. Broadcasting behind the Iron Curtain, Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty were praised by Poland’s Lech Walesa as being critical to the struggle against communism. Mr. Forbes was reappointed to his post by President George H. W. Bush and served until 1993.

Steve Forbes was born on July 18, 1947, in Morristown, New Jersey. He received a B.A. in history from Princeton in 1970.

 

Elizabeth Ames has co-authored three previous books with Steve Forbes: Money: How The Destruction of the Dollar Threatens The Global Economy—And What We Can Do About It; Freedom Manifesto: Why Free Markets Are Moral and Big Government Isn’t; and the Wall Street Journal bestseller, How Capitalism Will Save Us: Why Free People and Free Markets Are The Best Answer In Today’s Economy.

Scrapping "Obama care" is not the answer. scrapping any thing that comes out of the executive branch is not the answer. scrapping anything that come out of the federal government is not the answer. for the time being the problem that is immanent, present and that needs to be addressed is the private sector pure and simple. it is the private sector that has declared silent war on the average American while having " government" as well in its crosshairs. while "average Americans" sit and watch while loving "fictional tv" and over exuberant sports. the private sector has inflated everything we see around us. and has trashed everything America was suppose to stand for. the private sector has said no to more government oversight so they can keep bleeding the federal reserve the federal trade commission and the internal revenue serve dry and what really backs it. its the American people and there hard earned commodities as well as tax dollars. they have declared open season on the American person by saying be more marketable and don't worry ware cooperate dollars go due to the fact its not suppose to be your money, its our money since we own things. the thing is the American dream was meant to be for the person the individual the worker not the cooperation's which are stock hording green back wealth virtually while they say you are not worth the 15 dollars minimum wage, while they make billions and poor them into other cooperation's stocks they are suppose to be in competition with. this is fraud and they government is going along with it because it gives our elected officials and their counter part underlings something to "bitch" about at face value on the "news" and cspan. the reality is they like to hustle the market while the hole market is robbing the world while making everything look horrible on paper and screen while everyone ignores the true problem and such uses a scape goat and chases smaller problems that no one really wants to reform. the fed is broke china wants gold and our military is strong arming them while they release one coal plant for emission relief lies about emissions and just let the workers go to work for "the Americans" or be street thugs without a healthy alternative, because not even a communist governing country wants a healthy private sector that does not screw the consumer.(not including Russia do to illuminati possibility control measure) go back to work America if you really don't care

Best policy is to ignore the descendants of major criminals [like one of the world's biggest dope dealers in that era] such as Steve Forbes and John Kerry [descended from the founder of the Forbes fortune, Francis Blackwell Forbes, major opium dealer to China] - - if Steve Forbes was the Real Deal, his proposals wouldn't always benefit the super-rich, and if John Kerry was the Real Deal, he would have pursued the BCCI connections to George H.W. Bush much more vigorously, and have told the campus police not to taser that young student when he inquired about Kerry's membership in Yale's Skull & Bones.
