Nader discusses problems facing the country. These include the concentration of power and wealth; declines in real wages; lack of universal health care; NAFTA, GATT, and the problem of lowest-common-denominator harmonization demanded by free trade regimes; the tendency of the middle class to turn on the poor when the country is in decline; the lack of facts about corporate welfare in debates about public welfare; and skewed budget priorities.
