Capitalism,  The Way to a World of Peace and Plenty

Senator John Edwards
Director, Center of Poverty, Work, and Opportunity
UNC School of Law

Dear Senator Edwards: 
I was the Chairman and CEO of ADT, Inc. for about 18 years and have since studied the economic-political system for an equal time. The enclosed book, the product of this experience and study, can make a contribution to your Center’s mission and at the same time outline a political reform agenda for your examination.
The agenda is built on support of democratic capitalism, the good capitalism, while purging ultra-capitalism, the bad, with clear action on how to get from the bad to the good. A powerful political agenda is available for one who understands how Adam Smith’s few conditions for the success of economic freedom are violated, and how economic common purpose can displace imperialism. 
Please visit my web site for more on democratic capitalism, a bio, reviews of my book, and a description of my Carey Scholars program. Note the range of support in the testimonials on the back of the book from Republican, John Whitehead, former Deputy Secretary of State in the Reagan administration, coupled with Dr Hartoonian, a liberal professor. Whitehead was also Co-Head of Goldman Sachs which is important support considering my criticism of Wall Street.
My name may be familiar to you as have met my daughter Dr Lisa Carey in a professional capacity.
I am in Chapel Hill a few times a year and would like to meet with you to explain how my agenda can energize voters, particularly the near majority that does not vote.
