内容紹介

The fiery U.S. Senator from Massachusetts and bestselling author offers a passionate, inspiring book about why our middle class is under siege and how we can win the fight to save it

Senator Elizabeth Warren has long been an outspoken champion of America’s middle class, and by the time the people of Massachusetts elected her in 2012, she had become one of the country’s leading progressive voices. Now, at a perilous moment for our nation, she has written a book that is at once an illuminating account of how we built the strongest middle class in history, a scathing indictment of those who have spent the past thirty-five years undermining working families, and a rousing call to action.

Warren grew up in Oklahoma, and she’s never forgotten how difficult it was for her mother and father to hold on at the ragged edge of the middle class. An educational system that offered opportunities for all made it possible for her to achieve her dream of going to college, becoming a teacher, and, later, attending law school. But now, for many, these kinds of opportunities are gone, and a government that once looked out for working families is instead captive to the rich and powerful. Seventy-five years ago, President Franklin Roosevelt and his New Deal ushered in an age of widespread prosperity; in the 1980s, President Ronald Reagan reversed course and sold the country on the disastrous fiction called trickle-down economics. Now, with the election of Donald Trump—a con artist who promised to drain the swamp of special interests and then surrounded himself with billionaires and lobbyists—the middle class is being pushed ever closer to collapse.

Written in the candid, high-spirited voice that is Warren’s trademark, This Fight Is Our Fight tells eye-opening stories about her battles in the Senate and vividly describes the experiences of hard-working Americans who have too often been given the short end of the stick. Elizabeth Warren has had enough of phony promises and a government that no longer serves its people—she won’t sit down, she won’t be silenced, and she will fight back.

5つ星のうち 5.0 The Disappearing Middle Class - 2017/4/19
投稿者 Loyd Eskildson - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版
Prior to becoming involved in politics, Senator Warren had spent years tracking what was happening to America's middle class - working families and those that wanted to be working families. We'd built it with tax policies, public education, infrastructure, rules protecting consumers and investors, antitrust laws. The people who did most of the work got most of the gains. Now she sees the middle class on the ropes. The middle class works hard and their income barely budges, their budgets are stretched by housing and healthcare costs, and sending their children to college requires large, onerous loans. Trade deals are building jobs for workers in other parts of the world, and emptying factories here at home. Our children's chances for a better life than our own have fallen.

Today, America works great for those at the top - corporations rich enough to hire lobbyists and lawyers, billionaires paying taxes at lower rates than the hired help. Slick corruption via campaign donations is perverting our government and turning it into a tool of those already having wealth and influence.

She then recounts one of her early days in the Senate - a hearing on the $7.25 minimum wage. Ms. Warren believes nobody should work full-time and still live in poverty - but at $7.25/hour, a single mother can't do any better. The day didn't go well - despite workers' pay not keeping pace with inflation for over 40 years, Republicans wouldn't go for even a nickel increase. In fact, some wouldn't go for any minimum at all.

Flashback to when she was 16, working hard to afford a college education. Everyone in the family was working hard and her mother was not pleased - 'Why are you so special that you have to go to college?' Hours later, her father found her downtown, sitting on a bench at the bus station, still shaking, hurt and discouraged. They talked - about his heart attack, losing the station wagon to repossession, and then facing the loss of their house. How he'd been ashamed. Then, in the mid-1960s, things got better - her 50-year-old mother got a job at Sears at minimum wage, and her father found work as well. He told her things would get better for her too.

The minimum wage today is about 24% lower than in 1965. Nearly half of Americans would not be able to cover an unexpected expense of $400. A lower proportion of Americans own their homes than at any time in the past half century - 63.5%. The typical man working full-time earns less today than his counterpart did in 1972. The average Walmart costs taxpayers about $1 million in direct subsidies to employees who don't earn enough money to cover basic expenses - $7 billion overall; for all companies it's $153 billion/year. Guaranteed hours, fixed schedules and benefits are no longer for everyone - we're now a 'flexible workforce.'

'This Fight is Out Fight' covers how we got here and how she's trying to improve life for the middle class today.

5つ星のうち 5.0 A First-Rate Political and Policy Book for a Perilous Time 2017/4/18
投稿者 LAM - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
Returning with her second book in office, U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren’s “This Fight Is Our Fight” is a razor-sharp critique of the policy choices – wrought by corporate influence and dark money -- that have imperiled the economic security of America’s middle class. One of the book’s great strengths is that Warren doesn’t focus only on one or two issues, but rather tackles numerous poor policy choices that have led to this moment: a failure to enforce antitrust laws; deregulating the financial industry; crushing unions and workers; allowing public and private student loan lenders to fleece students; and curtailing medical and scientific research.

Warren’s concentration on the economic fragility of America’s middle class ran through her 2014 book, “A Fighting Chance,” and was a constant theme in her scores of books and articles written during her decades as a bankruptcy expert and law professor. What sets “The Fight Is Our Fight” apart is the tone, which is blunter and more impassioned than her 2014 memoir, “A Fighting Chance”). Warren names names in this book, and she isn’t reluctant to shine a light on, among others, the government officials who serve as handmaidens for industry rather than as regulators looking out for everyday Americans. In one outrageous example, Warren’s frustration leaps off the page when she describes a meeting that she had with the Office of Comptroller of Currency during the Bush Administration in which she pressed that agency to clamp down on deceptive credit card practices. After Warren had made her pitch with data and policy prescriptions, the Acting Comptroller (Julie Williams) told Warren while walking her out that “it was too bad” that the agency could never undertake such reforms because “the banks wouldn’t like it.”

Despite the harder-edged tone of “This Fight Is Our Fight,” Warren’s book is compulsively readable. Her prose is straightforward and engaging, but her greatest strength is an ability to illustrate recondite policy arguments through her own biography and through the lives of real people who are struggling to keep their place in the middle class: the Wal-Mart worker who had to quit community college at night because her employer refused to give her a set work schedule; the homeowner who lost his house due to the misleading terms in a refinancing; the student who started, but never finished, art school and now struggles under the burden of crushing student loans; and the couple who have steadily lost pace despite decades of working, saving, and playing by the rules. Warren’s portraits of these people are carefully drawn and detailed, which not only makes them come to life, but provides great force for the policy arguments behind them.

Warren’s “This Fight Is Our Fight” is more than just an excellent political book; it’s a statement of first principles from a political leader of surpassing wisdom, dedication, and compassion. At a time of great upheaval and anxiety in our nation, Warren provides something even more valuable than individual answers to individual problems; she provides concrete reassurance that America can build a better tomorrow if we once again prioritize the needs of millions of working Americans over the narrow interests of a privileged elite. Such reassurance is in short supply right now, which makes Warren’s book an ideal manual for these times.

I've been interning for Senator Elizabeth Warren for 4 months now, and I've really enjoyed her message that we all need to be in this fight together for justice and equality. Her book touches on personal experiences of those across the US, including those at home in her state of Massachusetts. Alongside these stories, she writes about the policy implications and data that inform her actions in Congress. Overall, I've loved reading this book, and can't wait to see what she comes out with next!

A Realistic view of a system that's bought and paid for by the rich and powerful. The influence of money is too great on both sides of the political spectrum and Senator Warren is not shy about calling out players on both sides of the political spectrum. This is a book that covers a lot of very complicated issues in an easy readable way. Warren is clearly smart, hard working and not afraid to speak truth to power. She's been writing and speaking out on these issues long before she entered the political arena.
