Product description

Product Description

If the US had a commonsense, consumer-friendly billionaire dictator/CEO (no, NOT Donald Trump), no more Congress, President or Supreme Court, these could/would/should be many of his policies.

Imagine that you had ABSOLUTE authority to run the US government. All of it, the whole shebang. What would you do? What principles would you follow? What policies would you put in place? Would you be a dictator with a light touch or a heavy-handed one?

More importantly, could you handle the job? Or would you just curl up in a fetal position, babbling stale, cliched talking points?

This mini-book gives you a glimpse at some of the principles and policies of a guy who found himself (more accurately, put himself) in exactly that position.

So how closely would his policies align with those you might think of?

From the book cover: For policy wonks and political science students, this is an excerpt of some of the policies put in place by Gordon Donne in "The Donne Deal," after he bought (legally) the United States government and fired Congress, the President and the Supreme Court, and took over all legislative, executive and judicial responsibilities.

"The Donne Deal" is a work of fiction, with elements of action, espionage, sex and humor, but Donne's serious policies are distilled into this mini-book, with none of that "fluff," as some might call it, included.

“A dictator with total authority, like Donne, should also have the wisdom to exercise that authority sparingly.” Agree or disagree? And do his policies follow that dictum? And what other questions or discussion topics might this mini-book raise in the readers' minds?
