Clinton also stresses that we need a strong private sector and a smart government working together to restore prosperity and progress demonstrating that whenever we ve given in to the temptation to blame government for all our problems we ve lost our ability to produce sustained economic growth and shared prosperity .

Clinton writes There is simply no evidence that we can succeed in the twenty first century with an antigovernment strategy based on a philosophy grounded in you re on your own rather than we re all in this together He believes that conflict between government and the private sector has proved to be good politics but has produced bad policies giving us a weak economy with not enough jobs growing income inequality and poverty and a decline in our competitive position In the real world cooperation works much better than conflict and Americans need victories in real life by Bill Clinton

money selling goat s milk to pay Beatrice s school fees and eventually to send all her children to school and as required to pass on a baby goat to another family thus multiplying the impact of the gift br br Clinton writes about men and women who traded in their corporate careers and the fulfillment they now experience through giving He writes about energy efficient practices about progressive companies going green about promoting fair wages and decent working conditions around the world He shows us how one of the most important ways of giving can be an effort to change improve or protect a government policy He outlines what we as individuals can do the steps we can take how much we should consider giving and why our giving is so important br br Bill Clinton s own actions in his post presidential years have had an enormous impact on the lives of millions Through his foundation and his work in the aftermath of the Asian tsunami and Hurricane Katrina he has become an international
