Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz Letter to America August 15, 2011 Dear Fellow Concerned Americans: Our country is better than this.

They have undermined the full faith and credit of the United States. They have stirred up fears about our economic prospects without doing anything to truly address those fears. They have spent a resource even more precious than the dollar: our collective con dence in each other, in the future, and in our ability to solve f problems together.
