One of America’s most experienced and respected financial and political thinkers who has received almost every journalistic award, Lou Dobbs shares his insight on politics and the economy with a keen political perspective. From Main Street to Wall Street to world markets, Dobbs provides probing analysis of our political economy and offers a unique perspective on how our nation’s leaders and government and business policies will likely shape America’s future.
In this stirring presentation, Lou Dobbs calls audiences to action in reclaiming their voice in our national dialogue. America has always been a land filled with a strong independent spirit and will, a country of hope, can-do attitude and entrepreneurial pride. Today, many Americans now look at their leaders in both government and business with cynicism and lack of trust. Rampant corporate corruption and partisan political infighting have done little to help. Leaders have shown a disregard for the will and respect of the middle class. The result is an angry gulf of mistrust that now exists between the government and the governed, between the will of our leaders and the hopes of those who put them in office. Dobbs discusses the need to break away from partisan politics driven by the demands of special interests and instead challenges his audience to do what’s best for America. He displays his passionate commitment to the ideals of independence and equality moving this country back to the cherished principles on which it was founded.
An independent voice willing to challenge political and business leaders across the spectrum, Lou Dobbs provides an in-depth analysis of the day’s top stories, their impact on the economy and presents a roadmap for building real solutions to our nation’s challenges at home and abroad.
For over three decades, Dobbs has brought perspective to the most important issues of our day—sustainable economic growth and prosperity, global business, finance and trade, education and public investment and national security. Provocative and fearless in his analysis and criticism of leaders and institutions who have failed in the wake of a turbulent economy, Dobbs offers prescriptions to rejuvenate the nation’s manufacturing sector, invigorate education and innovation, secure our nation’s borders and ports and resolve our immigration crisis rationally, humanely and in the national interest. Dobbs says our strength of will and independence of mind assure America’s return to prosperity, so long as we elect leaders of like spirit who preserve our great national values and ideals. In addition to his nightly prime time show on the Fox Business network, Lou Dobbs Tonight, Dobbs is also the author of numerous best-selling books: Upheaval (January, 2014) Independents Day: Awakening the American Spirit (2007), War on the Middle Class: How the Government, Big Business, and Special Interest Groups Are Waging War on the American Dream and How to Fight Back (2006) and Exporting America: Why Corporate Greed Is Shipping American Jobs Overseas (2004).
