About this project
What others are saying:
Income differences across individuals and families are an enduring source of concern for scholars, politicians, and citizens. In this brilliant volume -- with humility, humanity, and careful reflection -- Max Borders calms those concerns.
- Donald Boudreaux, Professor of Economics, George Mason University, blogger at Cafe Hayek.
It’s a very important message. His chapter on envy is really, truly brilliant. Max is the modern Helmut Schoeck.- Nick Schulz, The American Magazine
The project is SUPERWEALTH -- a book about "why we should stop worrying about the gap between rich and poor." I have already written most of the book. This project will allow me to publish, publicize and promote SUPERWEALTH in e-book and in print by the end of the year.
Why do this? I want to get SUPERWEALTH to market quickly. There is too much at stake in 2012 with the rise of Occupy Wall Street and a looming presidential election. If I go through legacy channels, this book won’t see daylight until 2014. We don’t have time for that.
I have a great publisher, publicist and promotional team waiting to pull the trigger on SUPERWEALTH right now -- if I can raise the capital. Anything in excess of $15,000 just increases the odds that this book will get eyeballs.
If The New York Times can trot out billionaires with guilt complexes, maybe someone out there will listen to a middle-class guy with a well-considered, well-researched case for why we should:
1. Stop worrying about The Gap,
2. Understand the true nature of wealth and poverty,
3. Stop demonizing the wealthy,
4. Focus on how best to help the poor, and
5. Learn to celebrate wealth creation.
With SUPERWEALTH, I have made an unapologetic case for the rich, their riches and the good they do in the world. I also offer some of their secrets on how they got that way... And who knows? I may get rich myself one day. It starts with abandoning legacy publishing. It all starts with you.
