This time, what will it take for our nation to keep up with the fast and violent changes to our new world '. Our commitment to our communities has lagged, and the number of Rotary members and kids enrolled in scouting programs dwindles every year. Involvement in communities like Church, Guides, Rotary, and even talking to people has gone down since the 90’s. Even when i agreed with the author, which was like 50% of the time, I found myself shaking my kindle and thinking "its not that simple! However, some of the biggest clouds may be clearing” in the way Americans have pulled together to help Ukraine and that getting past Covid19 might usher in a new wave of well-being.

Progress has come not from exploiting these fissures for private gain, but by knitting them together through shared prosperity. As interesting as why crime fell, however, is the peculiar persistence of our perception that it hasn’t. For all the political heat it continues to generate, Obamacare is also popular, and its actual provisions even more so when polltakers leave out the brand name. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). Lots of those things are important, and some might even relate to his argument (which, once again, is: institutions creating competition and protecting the middle class from the excesses of unrestricted competition--"ruthless capitalism"--have both atrophied).

In the last ten charts, Galloway tries to offer some solutions, but it's a little too little and a little too late, (and it doesn't help that this is the section that begins with my opening quote above). Galloway presents this by comparing the height of the Empire State Building (US defense spending) with the lampposts and fire hydrants next to that building. For example, during the COVID-19 pandemic, with all kinds of job loss, we also saw a rise in business applications as people innovated and adapted. It’s not the most truthful or pressing stories that get attention, but rather those that collectively entertain or outrage us.

Im not sure what was more of a waste - the time it took to read this book or the time the author spent writing it. Having studied issues effecting our country Scott Galloway, the author, found data that closely demonstrated the importance of the issue. Metcalfe posited that the value of a network is equal to the number of connections between users, not just the number of users.Galloway himself says in the conclusion “We are divided , angry and more of us feel disconnected” But he ends with a positive spin on his ocean-going allegory saying: “However landfall is there. America is starting to spend more on social programs and catching those in Western Europe in terms of share of GDP.
