It is not between the Left and the Right, but between the past and the future. America is on the edge of a breakout. In fact, we are poised for one of the most spectacular leaps in human well-being in history. Pioneers of the future—innovators and entrepreneurs—are achieving breakthroughs in medicine, transportation, energy, education, and other fields that will make the world a dramatically different and better place. Unless the “prison guards” of the past stop them. Every American must choose a side. Will you be a champion of the future or a prisoner of the past? Every potential breakthrough has to get past a host of individuals and institutions whose power and comfort depend on the status quo. These prison guards of the past will strangle every innovation that threatens to change the way things have always been done—if we let them.

America has entered a new era. The Great Recession of 2007-09 completely altered the way our society approaches employment. The economy is placing an increasing emphasis on knowledge and technology. Our world is becoming more globalized and interconnected than ever. It is undeniable: our world is changing. Change is a good thing, but it can also be painful, and I believe that Millennials have born the pain of these historic shifts more than any other group. Since the start of the Recession, the unemployment rate for young adults has been significantly higher than the national average. Total student debt in America exceeds $1 trillion dollars. And young people continue to face serious challenges in obtaining meaningful employment. Despite these obstacles, I believe young people have the power to achieve success in this new era. But this will require major shifts in how we approach education, what we expect from our government, and how we plan our own careers. This book is a reflection of the trends and tribulations that have made up this post-Recession era, and offers guidance on how to build meaningful, dynamic careers. It is a collection of the important conversations young people (and those who advise them) need to have in order to grasp success in a new economic age. We are the future of America. I believe the future is bright if we decide to act now.

The past century of labor was definitively captured by theories like Fordism and Taylorism, or scientific managment, but how do we make sense of global production today? This short book takes a panoramic view of the candidates for the most succinct theory of the 21st century division of labor, including post-Fordism, flexible accumulation, McDonaldization, Waltonism, Nikeification, Gatesism and Siliconism, shareholder value, and lean production and Toyotism. Authors Thomas Janoski and Darina Lepadatu argue that lean production in a somewhat expanded version presents three variations: Toyotism (the strongest form), Nikeification (a moderate form with off-shored plants lacking teamwork) and Waltonism (the merchandising form that presses for off-shoring). While all three share strong elements of "just in time" (JIT) production and supply chain management, they differ in how teamwork and long-term philosophies are valued. This critical review of dominant established theories serves to inform subsequent research on the contemporary international division of labor.

Chattanooga, Tennessee today is not the same town it was in the nineteen forties through the mid-eighties. Protected by a corrupt and self-serving local government, her masters fattened themselves on illegal enterprise. In this one book you have biography, treachery, and underworld intrigue. You have murder, and attempts at murder. You have innocence accused, and guilt unpunished. You have luxury, power, and privilege with their hands on all the strings. You have white lightning and whiskey runners, colorful whores, one great barroom brawl, and gunfights with such playbills as Cowboy Bob and the Shootout at The Fuzzy Duck. You have all the stuff of fiction, without the burden of a lie, all the benefit of great theatre, without having to leave your favorite chair. The best part of it is, it's all true. Down to the five o'clock shadow on the policemen dressed like prostitutes.
