How to Obtain a Phd (Penalty for Hardworking Dummies) in the United States: Inside Out
by Pearson Nurse

In the event of effacing the American Dream that has motivated both American born and immigrants for more than two hundred years, the author offers answers to mind-boggling questions why this is happening. The policy of unhealthy diet, irresponsible debts, and overmedicating Americans, promoted by the government, is the triple betrayal that devalues the famous traditional American belief in hard work leading to success. The author warns that America is replacing the values of high work ethic and free competition with crony capitalism, that favors chosen elite companies allowing them to socialize their loss and privatize their gain. Because of her multi-cultural background, Tamara Hammond has an original perspective of the United States and sees America from both the inside and the outside. Through the prism of these opposite views the author offers the unique angle of her perception and alerts the reader about some hurtful policies that are ruining the greatest country in the world. The insiders-outsiders outlooks are suggested in light of key events from recent American history that led to the current critical situation in the U.S.A. The author presents her ideas, observations, and analysis based on her thorough research and personal experience.

How Washington Actually Works For Dummies
by Greg Rushford

Get the inside scoop on the most powerful city on Earth

Washington, D.C.: Capital of the Free World; the most powerful city on Earth. No other country, company, or international organization can compare with the reach and wealth of the federal government. Policymaking — the art of deciding what programs to support, what laws to pass, or what regulations to write — is at the core of what Washington does and is what everyone, from the President on down, wants to influence.

How Washington Actually Works For Dummies isn’t a dry explanation of the American system of government but a playbook for how Washington really works: who has a seat at the table, how the policymaking process works, and how one survives. It takes you inside the political process in Washington, discusses changes in recent decades, and explains how the parts fit together. You find out:

  • Who really runs Washington
  • Why the President’s power is limited
  • How Congress (and its committee structure) works
  • What the bureaucrats — the men and women behind the curtain — do to earn your tax dollars
  • How lobbyists, activists, and other players influence policy

In a presidential election year when economic issues are center stage and the candidates will go head to head in policy debates, there’s no better time to discover the ins and outs of how policy is actually made.
