The poor represent as much as 70 percent of our population, and include everyone from the single mother earning minimum wage to the married accountant earning $50,000. These people may not sound powerful, but they are--once they begin to earn, spend, save, hire others, and pay taxes. In How the Poor Can Save Capitalism, Bryant presents a bipartisan, concrete plan that gives poor communities access to financial education, entrepreneurial support, bank accounts, and decent credit scores so they can be part of a healthy free enterprise system. John Hope Bryant currently serves on the President Obama's Advisory Council on Financial Capability for Young Americans, and also served under George W. Bush as Chairman of the Subcommittee on the Underserved and Community Empowerment during the George W. Bush presidency.

In fact, his team, the Magic, was named in honor of one of Disney's most famous creations, the Magic Kingdom. The name was chosen not only because the team's proximity to Disney World, but also as a tribute to Walt Disney, whose "magical personality" touched his community. How to Be Like Walt follows Disney from his humble childhood years on a farm outside of Kansas City until his death in December of 1966. What is clear throughout the book is a life of imagination, perseverance and optimism.
