Using the program detailed in The New Era, activist groups can restore democracy, equality, justice, and prosperity in America and indirectly promote global political stability and world peace.
Professor Peter Klein Director, Graduate School of Journalism & Director of the International Reporting Program, University of British Columbia, says, “Hamdy El-Rayes brings deep knowledge and perspective to one of the leading issues of our times. Not only does he highlight the problems and the cause of the economic crisis, but he outlines thoughtful solutions for returning democratic countries like the US to prosperity.”
Dr. El-Rayes has lived in Canada, the U.S., and Egypt. This enables him to offer a balanced, first-hand comparison between totalitarian regimes and Western democracies. El-Rayes discusses the 2008 financial crisis and explains how the taxation system has been changed in the past five decades to favor the wealthy elite at the expense of the middle class and the poor. He also explains how errors deliberately made by U.S. administrations led to the financial crash of 1929, the Great Depression, the 2008 Great Recession, and a series of aggressive wars that have been paid for with borrowed money. He also presents a comparison between the economy of the U.S. and that of China during the past four decades.
Dr. El-Rayes exposes the Power Triad, which consists of the military-industrial complex, multinational corporations, and the special interest groups. Triad members work for their own self-interest, against national interest and national security, using the American people to achieve their goals. As a result, they have impoverished the middle class, turning the U.S. from a world economic leader into the most indebted nation, with more than 48 million people living on food stamps.
El-Rayes analyzes how the Power Triad have deprived the American people of freedom of expression and freedom of the press; controlled Congress and the U.S. Administration, and made millions of Americans lose their American Dream. The Triad has used the U.S. military to destroy the environment in many countries, kill millions of people in the past century in South America, Asia, and Africa, devastate the lives of millions of innocent people around the globe, and spread misery wherever they needed to ensure their control of wealth and power. Although the U.S. debt exceeded its GDP, the Triad continues to urge the U.S. to attack Iran.
In discussing the U.S. business of war, the author draws a connection between the crime and violence in the U.S. and the continuous wars abroad.
El-Rayes details how Power Triad members avoid paying taxes while continuing to use the American people to achieve their objectives of controlling the global economy and power. Although they led the world into the financial crisis and the Great Recession of 2008, they are immune from prosecution, despite their crimes against the American people and the world economy. Even after the 2008 economic crisis, the Triad continues to manipulate the financial system through "quantitative easing," in order to increase their wealth and save Wall Street banks at the expense of the global economy.
