Author Daniel Kim has long been pondering the problems facing the United States and other countries. In discussing the economic woes of the United States, Dr. Kim states emphatically that the three branches of government, the Executive, the Legislative and the Judicial have not watched over each other enough, and none of the three has kept the other two branches from going out of control with corruption. Hence, Dr. Kim proposed in this slim but thoughtful book that a fourth branch of government be initiated that will receive all monies from all governmental transactions and corporations, deposit those monies and then report on them daily to the media world so years will not pass before people are aware of what transpired. Dr. Kim does admit that this fourth branch would require an existing government that is not totally corrupt. He does feel that governments should be run by experts and not elected politicians and states that governments of the world should communicate knowledge with each other to bridge differences, screening out the bad parts of individual governments traditions, cultures, and rules. Dr.Kim acknowledges that the United States is not assimilating well the new groups of immigrants entering our country and offers his thoughts on Medicare costs and educational reforms.
"Fourth Branch-Money Trail" is well-written and edited and is filled with Dr. Kim's thoughts on a variety of economic woes and their potential solutions. Dr. Kim is learned in his knowledge of all world cultures and his views will stimulate the reader to think, to oppose or to agree with Dr. Kim's position.This book is not for the reader who doesn't want to be challenged intellectually but for those who do, "Fourth Branch-Money Trail" will be a treat to read.
