New Indie Book Release: Exporting Prosperity: Why the U.S. Economy may never recover... (James H. Boudreau)


New Indie Book Release:
Exporting Prosperity: Why the U.S. Economy may never recover... - James H. Boudreau
Business / Economics / Society (October 2013)

The traditional media chooses not to discuss the statistic that reflect economic life for the average American, nor the forces at work that have reduced their standard of living for more than 20 years. This book examines those statistics and points to causes and effects that cannot be ignored, but somehow are…and that could prevent the U.S. Economy from every returning to past levels of prosperity.


About the Book

Exporting Prosperity: Why the U.S. Economy may never recover... (James H. Boudreau)
Click to Read an Excerpt
The United States has spent a good portion of the past 20 years in or on the brink of economic recession. The Federal Reserve has kept interest rates at almost zero and the Federal Government has spent trillions on so-called “stimulus”, yet the standard of living for the average American continues to decline. Jobs are few and far between, age discrimination is rife and layoffs abound, yet politicians continue to “distract and deflect” everyone’s focus towards other issues and “kick the can down the road”.

Exporting Prosperity explores the statistics that actually drive many aspects of the economy, in sharp contrast to the “feel-good” numbers reported each day. Rather than speculate on the future using traditional measures of the stock market, interest rates, etc., it starts with the statistic that people feel directly – jobs (or lack thereof). The author explores the relationship between unemployment, the trade deficit and other key measures of the economy. He spreads the responsibility for the country’s challenges equally and presents ideas to get back on track, some old, some new, some radical and some sensical. Intermingled with the numbers are anecdotes and a sense of humor, making the book entertaining as well as enlightening.
