This timely and important book addresses the American financial collapse and its cause, which is rooted in Greed. The book addresses our country’s descent into feelings of inadequacy and material greed and the concomitant ailments of materialism, depression and existential emptiness. Rabbi Shmuley examines the spiritual root of America’s chronic insatiability and offers philosophical and most importantly practical ways in which to combat greed and lead a more holistic, spiritual and fulfilling life. This is a unique book, as it does not condemn the human need for expansion, but validates it. Rabbi Shmuley redefines human expansiveness as a way to create a meaningful life by spiritual ascendency over perpetual acquisition and meaningful relationships over competitive one-upmanship.
