The Stakes: 2020 and the Survival of American Democracy - Robert Kuttner

The Stakes: 2020 and the Survival of American Democracy

To save both democracy and a decent economy, the author explains why it's crucial that Americans elect a truly progressive president.

The 2020 presidential election will determine the very survival of American democracy. To restore popular faith in government--and win the election--Democrats need to nominate and elect an economic progressive. The Stakes explains how the failure of the economy to serve ordinary Americans opened the door to a demagogic president, and how democracy can still be taken back from Donald Trump.

Either the United States continues the long slide into the arms of the bankers and corporate interests and the disaffection of working Americans--the course set in the past half century by Republican and Democratic presidents alike--or we elect a progressive Democrat in the mold of FDR. At stake is nothing less than the continued success of the American experiment in liberal democracy. That success is dependent on a fairer distribution of income, wealth, and life changes --and a reduction in the political influence of financial elites over both parties.

The decay of democracy and economic fairness began long before Trump. The American republic is in need of a massive overhaul. It will take not just a resounding Democratic victory in 2020 but a progressive victory to pull back from the brink of autocracy. The Stakes demonstrates how a progressive Democrat has a better chance than a centrist of winning the presidency, and how only this outcome can begin the renewal of the economy and our democracy.

A passionate book from one of America's best political analysts, The Stakes is the book to read ahead of the 2020 primaries and general election.
