ANDREW PUZDER is the chief executive of CKE Restaurants, and helped turn Hardee's and Carl's Jr. into the fast food powerhouses that they are today. Starting as the owner's personal attorney in 1991, Puzder helped pull the company out of serious financial difficulties. Under his leadership, CKE has expanded to 3,700 restaurants globally.
"Free enterprise built America and continues to make us the
strongest nation in the world. Yet the policy prescriptions of the
progressive Left attack the free enterprise system, and socialism
is increasingly popular on college campuses. Andy Puzder is an
ardent and articulate champion of American capitalism. His moral
case for free enterprise and insight into the history of American
capitalism should be warmly welcomed and are desperately
"I've known Andy Puzder for decades, and he is a man who's talked the talk AND walked the walk. This book is a robust endorsement of capitalism written by the consummate capitalist, and it holds the key to understanding how to make the most of the Trump moment."--Arthur B. Laffer, Ph.D.
"Hooray! Capitalism and free markets are making a big comeback in America under Donald Trump. Andy Puzder, a chief advisor to Trump during the campaign, explains how and why it's working. Finally, a book about America with a happy ending."--Stephen Moore, senior economic advisor to the Trump campaign and Heritage Foundation economist.
"Great book.... Capitalist Comeback will be a big hit!"--President Donald Trump
"Puzder is exactly the kind of businessman politicians should listen to but don't. We ignore him at our economic peril."--The Federalist
"A sweeping historical view of capitalism - and of the opposition to it, ranging from the left's "war on profit" following the Gilded Age and the rise of labor unions to modern progressives' vilification of business and their rejection of the views of moderate Democratic Party leaders such a John F. Kennedy and Bill Clinton."--Ed Conard, RealClearPolitics
"In the introduction to his book, Puzder says that one of his primary goals in writing it was to create a "'Most Wanted' list of the institutions standing in the way of freedom and prosperity" in America so that those who value capitalism and free enterprise can better understand the forces that are fighting to obstruct Trump's economic agenda. And in that respect, The Capitalist Comeback succeeds pretty brilliantly."--Townhall.com
"Such a fantastic book. Everybody should be reading it."--Trish Regan, Fox Business
"A great new book."--Stuart Varney, Fox Business
"Love the book."--Laura Ingraham, Fox News
"A very honest of step back...[the book] inspires me."--Neil Cavuto, Fox News
"As a successful CEO in the restaurant industry, Andy Puzder uniquely understands how important the profit motive is to our country's ultimate prosperity."--The Heritage Foundation
"The Capitalist Comeback gives a vociferous and much-needed moral, philosophical, and economic defense of capitalism, which is under siege by a variety of left-wing interest groups. While the Trump Administration has rolled back some of the overregulation and overtaxation that prevents ordinary people from becoming extraordinary, only widespread recognition of capitalism's role in creating opportunity for everyone-especially those who need it most-will ensure America's continued success in the 21st century and beyond. Given his decades of leadership in the private sector and being on the receiving end of an ugly, coordinated left-wing attack, Andy Puzder understands this fight better than anyone and is the perfect messenger to deliver this vital message."--Bernie Marcus, co-founder of Home Depot
"Before he was one of America's most successful restaurant CEOs, Andy Puzder earned an hourly wage working his way through school while raising a family. This makes his insights all the more important. Free market capitalism benefits everyone-worker and owner alike. The Capitalist Comeback is a much-needed antidote to the socialism of the Bernie Sanders-Elizabeth Warren Left."--Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House
