One of the writer's jobs is to help us think. When we sharpen our thinking abilities, we begin to make better choices in our lives. And when we choose wisely, we begin to live at our potential.

Background Information

I grew up in poverty and all but dropped out of life at an early age.Only the kindness of a few thoughtful people helped me through the early years. But they wereenough. I slowly climbed back intothe arena, and worked my way toward a few small goals, eventually earningasurvivor's income. When such issues mattered, I earned 3 academic degrees, worked for the government for 20 years, and in the private sector for 25 years. Now, my focus has narrowed to the gentler arts of reading, writing, golfing, and sharing ideas.Mostly I annoy my friends with emails and give them advice they did not ask for, probably don't need, and almost certainly do not want.I find great humor and wisdom in Robert Frost's complete poem: "Forgive me, O Lord, for thelittle jokes I played on Thee, and I will forgive the big one you played on me." Brevity is stilla virtue.

The New American Challenge is my first book although I've been writing for about 40 years. It is a survivor's guide to everyday economics and market choices. Don't look for a textbook with lots of boring charts and data. It is a hard critical look at life in America. I've made the argument that life is good for about 20 percent, and not so good for the other 80 percent. Clearly, there is nothing startling in that observation. But when anyone tries to move up the economic ladder, obstacles appear at every entry point. That journey is the most formidable challenge you are likely to ever confront. You simplyare not welcome to join the "top 20 percent" club. There are roadblocks everywhere. The first step in overcoming these obstacles is to know that they exist, why they exist, where they exist, and how to overcome them. You can spend a lifetime (as I did) learning about them in the school of hard knocks. A few hours with this book can help trim 20 rough years off your journey.

I've also written a lot of essays and some poetry, a fewof which are posted on Stop by and read them if you can. There are many, many interesting articles, poems, and books bya diverse group of authors on this website.

I'm currently gathering data for a new book entitled "God, the Universe, and Us." It should be ready for publication by next year.

Additional Information

My only book is entitled "The New American Challenge." It describes how we can eventually eliminate poverty and create trillions of dollars of new wealth by making wiser economic choices. I've got a new book that is nearing completion entitled "God, the Universe, and Us." It has 11 roundtable discussions with a long list of very famous people on a variety of subjects ranging from science, to poetry, to music, to philosophy.

New American Challenge
This is a tale of freedom--to think, to choose, and to achieve at our potential. Without them, we are ineffective. With them, we can literally change the world.
