A More Just World discusses how to change United States government policies to help the poor in the United States and in the world. Everyone after Katrina was shocked at the poverty in New Orleans.

This book is not for the sophisticated economists of the world. This is down to earth practical advice and is for every person who wants to live in a better world. The author Daniel O’Gorman has been a business man until his early fifties when he had to take on the care of his grandson. Then in his sixties two more grandchildren were put in his care. Due to the care requirements of the children Mr. O’Gorman lost his job and became a member of the working poor. It is from this perspective and considerable social justice training and work that this book was born.
We hope you find the time to read this book, enjoy it and act on its message.
