Clinton also stresses that we need a strong private sector and a smart government working together to restore prosperity and progress, demonstrating that whenever we ve given in to the temptation to blame government for all our problems, we ve lost our ability to produce sustained economic growth and shared prosperity.
Clinton writes, There is simply no evidence that we can succeed in the twenty-first century with an antigovernment strategy, based on a philosophy grounded in you re on your own rather than we re all in this together. He believes that conflict between government and the private sector has proved to be good politics but has produced bad policies, giving us a weak economy with not enough jobs, growing income inequality and poverty, and a decline in our competitive position. In the real world, cooperation works much better than conflict, and Americans need victories in real life.
