David Wade has seen how politics in America and across the world are being challenged and transformed as never before, at a time when the only thing not moving faster are institutions’ ability to meet the demands of restive populations. Wade takes an audience inside the churn of global governance as we approach 2020, and offers insights into the smartest leaders—in business, politics, and government—who meet the challenge head-on.

In the twenty years that David Wade has been active in politics, government, foreign policy, and business, the very nature of communications has been transformed by technology, time, and transparency. Wade has lived the journey from traditional communications to today’s ever unfolding, balkanized world of media outlets and social media. He’s seen its impact on world events—not just in the United States but also from Tahrir Square in Egypt to Brexit in Europe. From the unique vantage point of a political and policy professional who has both shaped and been impacted by the changing communications inside and outside of government, Wade offers his insights into how to stay on the right side of communicating with your audience in the modern environment.

He’s one of America’s most capable, candid and independent financial experts. Now David M. Walker sounds a call to action. As Comptroller General of the United States—"the nation’s top auditor"—Walker warned Congress and the administration as the federal surplus became a giant deficit over the last decade. Now, as the founder and CEO of the Comeback America Initiative, Walker has mounted a national campaign to raise public awareness regarding the wasteful ways of Washington and the rising debt burdens being imposed on future generations. He advocates returning to the timeless principles and values that made us great while making the tough choices necessary to help ensure that our future is better than our past. With the federal government’s financial hole already over 13 trillion dollars deep and growing rapidly, Walker presents ways for our country to rein in out-of-control government spending and reform our Social Security, health care, defense, tax, political and other systems before it’s too late.

Like a modern-day Paul Revere, David Walker warns that while our country’s current fiscal crisis is eerily similar to the downfall of Rome, Americans have a proven historical capacity to overcome any challenge when "We the People" wake up and get going. Walker shares an engaging historical perspective that takes listeners from Rome to the Founding Fathers’ original intent. With deftness and detail, he shows how we got here, what measures we must take to get ourselves out of the financial morass and what the implications will be if we continue to follow the „status quo“ path. In spite of the fiscal crisis, Walker imparts his faith that Americans will respond with commitment to the sacrifices required to make sure that our future is better than our past.
