Leon S. Robertson, Ph.D. -- Books and backgrpund information:

This page provides links to Leon Robertson's publications and free downloads of Make America Great Again: Myths, Lies, and Facts, the 4th edition of Injury Epidemiology and computer programs for stock analyses. From the Foreword of Leon Robertson's book Make America Great Again: Who invented fraudulent financial real estate loan schemes that almost destroyed the world financial system? Who closed their factories in U.S. communities and opened them in other countries? Who kept their U.S. workers’ pay stagnant while their income soared? Who wants to sell all the coal and oil that they own no matter how hot the earth gets? Who flooded U.S. cities and towns with opioid prescription drugs? Not foreign governments and not illegal immigrants. The answer is: rich American capitalists. I am a capitalist investor but I say so with chagrin at what capitalists have done to America in recent decades. The wealthy have created an economy that benefits them at the cost of opportunity for the majority of Americans. Those that accumulate their wealth by exploiting fossil fuel deposits are rapidly destroying the environment that sustains us all. They use campaign contribution to elect government officials who deny the threat of global warming and do nothing to prevent the environmental disaster that is upon us. They oppose programs and regulations that prevent disease and injury and help pay the bills for medical care and drugs for those who need them the most. They run up the price of prescription drugs. They promote the privatization of schools and for-profit colleges, some of which exploit their students rather than educate them. They sell arms to foreign governments that sometimes end up in the hands of dictators and terrorists hostile to our country. This book is about the history of a large number of major problems and solutions performed by our form of government and their relevance to today’s problems. It is about solutions to problems that are being ignored or abandoned.
