Citizen's Share / Putting Ownership Back into Democracy book by Joseph R. Blasi, Richard B. Freeman & Douglas L. Kruse  "The Citizen's Share: Putting Ownership Back Into Democracy" [2013]
by Joseph Blasi, Richard Freeman & Douglas Kruse

Founding Fathers Washington, Adams, Jefferson, and Madison believed that the best economic plan for the new Republic was for citizens to have some ownership stake in the land (then the main form of productive capital), while business capital has since replaced land as the source of wealth creation. This important and insightful work is based on a ten-year study of profit-sharing & employee ownership at small and large corporations and makes the case that an ownership stake in a corporation inspires and increases worker loyalty, productivity, and innovation. This book shows how the Founders’ original vision of sharing ownership and profits offers a viable path toward restoring the middle class.

Debtors' Prison Politics book by Robert Kuttner  "Debtors' Prison: The Politics of Austerity versus Possibility" [2013]

Meanwhile corporations get to use bankruptcy to walk away from debts and homeowners and small nations do not. Austerity serves only the interest of creditors – the very bankers and financial elites whose actions precipitated the collapse.
