The Rigged Game by John Hively, now this looks like a good

intelligent analysis of the current malaise.

"Using statistics from the Commerce Department and other sources, and beginning with the Great Depression, Hively traces how recessions begin, how corporations and financial markets are interconnected and describes the consequences of current distribution of wealth and income practices. His economic analysis, and historical comparisons, blend to show that the current practice of distribution of wealth and income has left a huge concentration of wealth at the top. During the last 30 years, income and wealth in North America have increasingly shifted from those who work for a living to an economically and politically connected, but small, group of affluent people: in almost all categories the upper 10% of American families soared, while the remaining 90% either stagnated, or at the lower end, actually declined."

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
