RALPH NADER
The Seventeen Solutions: Bold Ideas for Our American Future
Hosted by Philip Maldari

Ralph Nader is an internationally famous American political activist, author, lecturer, and attorney. Areas of his particular concern and expertise include consumer protection, humanitarianism, environmentalism, and democratic government. In an era when the Occupy movement is sharpening critical consciousness, yet struggling to provide answers, Ralph Nader's Seventeen Solutions is particularly welcome.

Educated at Princeton, Harvard University and Harvard Law School, Nader originally achieved prominence in 1965 with the publication of his book Unsafe at Any Speed, a scathing indictment of the safety record of American automobile manufacturers in general, and most famously the Chevrolet Corvair. The book led to congressional hearings and automobile safety laws passed in 1966, including the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act. He was instrumental in the creation of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CSPC), and the National Highway Transportation Safety.

Ralph Nader's name appeared in the press as a potential candidate for president for the first time in 1971, when he was offered the opportunity to run as the presidential candidate for the New Party, a progressive split-off from the Democratic Party in 1972. Chief among his advocates was author Gore Vidal. By now Nader is a six-time candidate for President of the United States, having run as a write-in candidate in the 1992 New Hampshire Democratic primary, as the Green Party nominee in 1996 and 2000, and as an independent candidate in 2004 and 2008.

Named by The Atlantic as one of the hundred most influential figures in American history, and by Time and Life magazines as one of the most influential Americans of the twentieth century, Ralph Nader has helped us drive safer cars, eat healthier food, breathe better air, drink cleaner water, and work in safer environments for more than four decades.
