What specific actions did Rorty advocate in this book demanding the advocating of specific actions? Very few, and I do not think that diminished the value of the book. He did say that the top of the list must clearly be radical campaign finance reform. And he named a problem which he said will probably be our biggest, although he confessed he had no solution to it. The problem is this: "Globalization is producing a world economy in which an attempt by any one country to prevent the immiseration of its workers may result only in depriving them of employment." A conflict has developed, in other words, between helping the poor of the world and helping the poor of America. Concentrating too much on the former, Rorty fears, will open the door to a Buchanan-type appeal to the poor of America, an appeal which will be false and will have disastrous results for America and the world.
