The Capitalist Comeback: The Trump Boom and the Left's Plot to Stop It

By Andrew Puzder
Andy Puzder, the former CEO of Carl's Jr. and Hardee's, says that "capitalism" is not a dirty word, and thankfully President Trump understands this; his pro-business policies will bring back economic growth and secure our future.
As a successful CEO in the restaurant industry, Andy Puzder uniquely understands how important the profit motive is to our country's ultimate prosperity. Furthermore, as the grandson of immigrants, the son of a car salesman, and someone who worked his way up from earning minimum wage to running an international business, he has a first-hand view of how America's exceptional capitalist spirit can lift everyone to success.
In 2016, the American people faced a stark choice between two very different presidential candidates. Hillary Clinton spent most of her adult life involved in politics and promised to uphold and advance the progressive legacy of President Barack Obama who had first won the White House on promises to "spread the wealth around." Donald Trump, on the other hand, came from the business world, was an unapologetic capitalist, used his own personal wealth as inspiration, and promised simply to "Make America Great Again."
By choosing Trump over Clinton, the American people put a stop to decades of government expansion under progressive leadership, and they might just have saved our economy by doing so.
America was once a land where everyone was encouraged to seek their fortune - the more prosperous our citizens, the more our whole society could in turn prosper. But leftist forces in the United States have been seeking to tarnish the pursuit of prosperity and to paint profit as an evil motivation fit only for greedy plutocrats. Andrew Puzder understands this first-hand after a progressive smear campaign stopped him from joining President Trump's cabinet. As Puzder explains in his new book, THE CAPITALIST COMEBACK, this was an act of desperation from a left wing facing irrelevance with a pro-business president in the White House. From its roots in the Progressive Era to labor unions to education to entertainment to its political resurgence with avowed socialist candidates such as Bernie Sanders, Puzder traces the development of the anti-profit forces in the United States and shows how, under President Trump, they can be vanquished for good.


    REVIEW QUOTES
"THE CAPITALIST COMEBACK gives a vociferous and much-needed moral, philosophical, and economic defense of capitalism, which is under siege by a variety of left-wing interest groups. While the Trump Administration has rolled back some of the overregulation and overtaxation that prevents ordinary people from becoming extraordinary, only widespread recognition of capitalism's role in creating opportunity for everyone-especially those who need it most-will ensure America's continued success in the 21st century and beyond. Given his decades of leadership in the private sector and being on the receiving end of an ugly, coordinated left-wing attack, Andy Puzder understands this fight better than anyone and is the perfect messenger to deliver this vital message."--Bernie Marcus, co-founder of Home Depot
