Just as he embarks on a global economic tour through Europe, China and Malaysia, John Hope Bryant, Operation HOPE CEO, also marks the first 100 days since his bestselling book, How the Poor Can Save Capitalism (Berrett-Kohler), was published. An instant bestseller, the book has sparked a movement at a time when its central theme – financial empowerment of the middle class – is the central issue in America today. Notably, Mr. Bryant joins a select club of bestselling African-American authors in economics, even though he himself is not an economist or an academician.
Within the first 48 hours of its debut on June 2, 2014, How the Poor Can Save Capitalism sold-out on Amazon.com and has remained on the Top 10 lists of social development and poverty categories on both Amazon and iBooks
It has reached as high as #9 on the Amazon list, and is the bestselling book on poverty, arguably the most important issue in America. In it, Mr. Bryant, a self-made businessman and founder of Operation HOPE (a global financial empowerment non-profit), argues that business and political leaders are ignoring the one force that could truly re-energize the stalled American economy — the 'poor.'
