Oakland, CA (PRWEB) October 8, 2015 -- How the Poor Can Save Capitalism is a book about saving America, all of America. Due to the book’s continued success, for its one-year anniversary, we are pleased to announce that it will be published in paperback. As witnessed by the reviews, comments and book sales the message in this book has never been more relevant than now. In the book, John Hope Bryant explains his strategy for restoring the American middle class and eradicating poverty. He says, “We must make financial literacy – teaching each and every one of our children the language of money – the new civil rights issue for the twenty-first century America.” (Read the PRWeb post here.)
