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 – one who spent most of her adult life involved in politics and promised to uphold and advance the progressive legacy and one who came from the business world and was an unapologetic capitalist.
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. In his new book, The Capitalist Comeback, Andrew Puzder traces the development of the anti-profit forces in the United States and shows how they can be vanquished for good.
