A Juilliard graduate, James Behr was hailed as “a demon pianist” by The Boston Globe and “genius composer” by InTheFray Magazine. In his new book "America on the Verge," Journalist James Behr presents innovative analysis and bold solutions for the economy, banking system, trade & outsourcing, automation & the "gig" economy, nuclear terrorism, drug abuse, population growth, poisonous politics, failing education, vanishing fine arts, solar energy, fusion power, electric cars, $19 trillion government debt, oil, the warming planet, and rising oceans. Drawing upon the inspiring economic success of the post-Wwii generation, bold ideas and a vision for the future are presented, from solar energy to political reform to revolutionary government change (publicly funded elections).

America needs a bold vision - solutions to pull America out of malaise and back on track as an economic superpower and beacon of freedom.
