Summerland Publishing Releases 'The Relevance of Reason' by Mack W. Borgen
by BWW News Desk - Jul 3, 2013

For those who care about the truth and rely on the power of reason, this book delivers hope and a foundation for creating a better future for our country and our people. In an age when political agenda trumps truth, when political one upmanship seems to be more important than The Public Good, and when the economy is both hostile and unforgiving, having access to the unvarnished facts about our country can make a world of difference. The Relevance of Reason - Business and Politics uses facts to lay the foundation for gaining a true understanding of where we really are. By looking at 'Modern America,' our country from 1957 to the present, and 'Current America,' the country as it is today, we can examine our situation with both context and perspective. Mack Borgen's only agenda is to present a wealth of facts neutrally so people of all political, economic, and philosophical persuasions can engage in thoughtful consideration of what's really wrong and how we might make it right. About the Author: Mack W. Borgen is a native of Montana. He was raised in the Pacific Northwest and the Midwest. He graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with Honors in Economics and from Harvard Law School. He also served more than four years in the U.S. Army. After living in Europe for a brief period, he began a career simultaneously practicing business law and writing about various economic, political, and social matters. Over the last five years he has devoted much of his time to the writing of a series of books entitled The Chance of a Lifetime, of which The Relevance of Reason is the first in the series. He lives with his wife and son in Santa Barbara, California and Bigfork, Montana. The Relevance of Reason: The Hard Facts and Real Data About the State of Current America - Business and Politics by Mack W. Borgen (more...)
