From the publisher

The 2020 presidential election will be pivotal for the credibility of government and for democracy itself, argues Robert Kuttner in this compelling call to arms. Either America continues the twin slides into corrupt autocracy and corporate plutocracy-the course set in the past half century by Republican and Democratic presidents alike-or Americans elect a progressive Democrat in the mould of FDR. At stake is nothing less than the continued success of the American experiment in liberal democracy. Kuttner convincingly shows that a progressive Democrat also has a better chance than a centrist of winning the presidency in the current political environment. The Stakes is the book to read ahead of the 2020 primaries.
