Author William Keiper describes his book thusly: “Although the title Apple for President! is, I hope, somewhat provocative, the subject matter is serious. As citizens, we can no longer stand around passively hoping that a new economic platform will somehow spontaneously take shape and raise us out of our economic difficulties.
Our government's unapologetic addiction to borrowing and the pervasive financial challenges of many of our citizens are two clear indicators of the magnitude of the challenge.
Our current form of government--operating under the same structure first adopted when our Constitution was ratified in 1788--has not kept up with the complexity and pace of our times. Consequently, no individual president--no matter how brilliant or gifted with leadership and other skills--can show the way forward in the creation of a new economic platform.
We need a flexible democracy to meet the challenges of the times. Creating a shift of the magnitude now required will necessitate applying the best of our political leadership and the best of our private sector acumen and brilliance--all in the service of reengineering our government and economy.
Apple for President! is an idea whose time has come.”
