Market or state? An American answer


Did Bill Clinton tell us anything else? And if so, what? He just had to intervene again, writes Clinton right away. Because important connections and economic facts disappear behind parteipolitic bickering. And so he tries to point out ways to the future from a non-partisan perspective.

His eyes are focused on the USA. Clinton shows how the current situation came about and intelligently intervenes in the debate, which dominates everything else, not just in the US: how much state or politics do we need and how much market? Those who want to understand what still haunts the still world-leading nation will get deep insights in "There's a lot to do".

Against the tea party activists


Quite as non-partisan as Clinton announces, he (of course) does not stay. His reasoning is mostly directed at the "Teaparty" activists who most wanted to shed the state and politics. They are extremely popular because they tie directly to the American founding myth - finally get away from the British Empire, finally tear down the barriers and regulations that they are constantly buzzing up a distant governance.

The fight against a state that abused its power was but one facet of history. Another, Clinton emphasizes, was the desire for a government "that is limited in its power but has the power to preserve our freedoms and is strong and flexible enough to adapt to the challenges of the new times."

It can not be done without the state


It is precisely these debates that determine the political discourse in many European countries. It must never be forgotten that the program of the US-American Democrats is not far away from what is branded in this country as "neo-liberal". Bill Clinton focuses his attention on three points:

  • On the growing inequality of income and access to jobs, health and education
  • At risk of instability from uncontrolled financial markets, worldwide terrorism and political upheavals
  • Unbridled growth that is plundering natural resources and causing unprecedented environmental issues.

To solve these problems, that is Clinton's conclusion, we need "effective state intervention".

Let's go, paint roofs!


Clinton reads the Levites to the USA. Shows relentlessly where they have long since fallen behind their competitors on the world market and how they run the risk of losing their leading role. But Bill Clinton would not be American if he did not see the positives and the opportunities. And so it is not surprising that the former President of the United States of America wrote in the chapter "What we can do" under point 12: "At least paint the roofs white". Because, according to Clinton, "the black tar roofs that cover hundreds of thousands of American buildings absorb a tremendous amount of energy ... If you just paint the roof white, you can reduce a house's energy consumption on a hot day by as much as 30%." This is pragmatism made in the USA. A setting that not only allows the US to get on its feet again.

Long live the American dream!


With "There's a lot to do" Bill Clinton wants to blow away the dust that has settled on the American idea. He wants to make the US back to what has made the country great by offering the chance to "pursue your own dreams and leave your children a land where they can do likewise."

And so he delivers a blaupause for what is also in Europe. The communication about a common way into the future. A book that shows what politics could do. And how important it is for everyone to make their contribution!
