Americas Future: Requiem or Renaissance? An Agenda for the Transformation of Our Nation and Ourselves
by Bernard Gluckstern
In Americas Future: Requiem or Renaissance? An Agenda for the Transformation of Our Nation and Ourselves, Bernard Gluckstern has created that rare book that articulates both a vision and a strategic approach to its implementation. He explores the various tactics and approaches which those at the apogee of our financial pyramid deploy to ensure that we remain a society that is exhausted, apprehensive, and divided, and subjected to increasing pressures as the result of our deteriorating material circumstances. However, more importantly he provides a blueprint to restore the political efficacy of our population, by augmenting ethical business enterprises and compelling mammoth organizations to reform their negative behaviors or face extinction. These objectives can be achieved by the commitment of citizens who will no longer permit the current injustices.
About the Author: Bernard Gluckstern has devoted much of his professional career to the mitigation of poverty and the empowerment of the poor in such locales as Watts (Los Angeles), Appalachia, New York City, Newark, and Washington D.C. He is the recipient of a M.A. degree in Political Science from Brown University and a B.A. degree in Philosophy from Alfred University.

Bernard Gluckstern presents a vision of how corporations should structure and govern themselves which may be a tough pill to swallow for entrepreneurs but it is a strong seed that must be sowed in society. He brings to light the evidence that points to a continued deterioration of our nations moral fabric as a result of corporate greed and apathy towards the social well being of ALL our people. The substance of this book caused me to remember a quote from the gospels. For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? (Mark 8:36)
