Author Stephen Schade, the son of a staunch Republican and a frequent contributor to political blogs, explores the two schools of thought from political, social, historical, and economic perspectives. He builds upon the observations of historians before making conclusions. He explains how
political cycles change every thirty years;
recessions coincide with conservatives being in power;
liberals are more effective than conservatives; and
conservative policies hurt most Americans.
Schade also considers important financial concepts, such as stagflation, inflation, and stock market dynamics. Discover how, time after time, actions by conservatives have devastated the financial markets, American companies, and the lives of hardworking people. Meanwhile, the actions of liberals, such as taking the country off the gold standard, establishing social security, and funding various social programs, have helped the nation.
Considering many issues from an informed vantage point, Schade seeks to ask the right questions and to answer them with care, proving that Right Is Wrong.
In the present, Peter Fallon’s son asks his father for help appraising the rare books in the Spencer estate and reconstructing Spencer’s seven-part journal, which has been stolen from the California Historical Society. Peter and Evangeline head for modern San Francisco and quickly discover that there’s something much bigger and more dangerous going on, and Peter’s son is in the middle of it. Turns out, that lost river of gold may be more than a myth.
Past and present intertwine as two stories of the eternal struggle for power and wealth become one.
