Only the Super-rich Can Save Us! free pdf What if a cadre of super-rich individuals, led by billionaire Warren Buffett, tried to become a driving force in America to address the interests of the citizens of this troubled nation? What if these 17 super-rich individuals decided to galvanise a movement for alternative forms of energy? Nader's extraordinary story returns readers to the literature of American social movements - to Edward Bellamy, to Upton Sinclair, to John Steinbeck, to Stephen Crane - reminding them in the process that changing the body politic of America starts with imagination.

About Ralph Nader

Born in Connecticut in 1934, RALPH NADER has spent his lifetime challenging corporations and government agencies to be more accountable to the public. His 1965 book "Unsafe at Any Speed" permanently altered the course of a reckless U.S. automobile industry and made Nader a household name. His lobbying and writing on the food industry helped to ensure that the food we buy is required to pass strict guidelines before reaching the consumer. One of Nader's greatest achievements was his successful lobbying for a 1974 amendment to the Freedom of Information Act, which gave increased public access to government documents. Over the years he has co-founded the public interest groups Public Citizen, Critical Mass, Commercial Alert, and the Center for the Study of Responsive Law. His 2000 presidential campaign on the Green Party ticket served to broaden the scope of debate on the nation's priorities. Named by the" Atlantic" as one of the hundred most influential figures in American history, Nader continues to be a relentless advocate for grassroots activism and democratic change. He lives in Washington, D.C.
