The Story of Broke is here! Why there is still plenty of money to build a better future.
The United States isn’t broke; we’re the richest country on the planet and a country in which the richest among us are doing exceptionally well. But the truth is, our economy is broken, producing more pollution, greenhouse gasses and garbage than any other country. In these and so many other ways, it just isn’t working. But rather than invest in something better, we continue to keep this ‘dinosaur economy’ on life support with hundreds of billions of dollars of our tax money. The Story of Broke calls for a shift in government spending, including military spending, toward investments in clean, green solutions that can deliver jobs AND a healthier environment (sounds a lot like WAND's mission, right?). It’s time to rebuild the American Dream; but this time, let’s build it better.
