Joseph S. Bayana is the founder of the Institute for the Study of Succession and Continuity (ISSC), a privately-funded, not-for-profit think tank that endeavors to do research and disseminate information on the continuous viability of the United States of America, democracy and free-market capitalism (www.greatestchallenge.org).
He is the pioneering expert in Succession and Continuity Studies.
Joseph's second book "Poverty is a Choice: How and Why Millions Turn Their Back on the American Dream," aims to change the way we look at the socio-economic issue of poverty; from a perception of helplessness and destitution to one of choice, learning and achieving goals.
Joseph has a Bachelor‘s Degree in Political Science, Masters Degree in History, and has deferred his doctorate studies to pursue his research and passion for Succession and Continuity Studies.
Tackling significant issues facing an America-led civilization, it reminds us how each and every generation must ensure the hand-over processes take place or risk the vaunted start of the breakdown. It's about the responsibilities and leadership of each and every American, explaining how and why our decisions can make or break history’s most successful experiment in democracy and capitalism.
