The Very, Very Wealthy & the Government Apr 8, 2010
If you ever wondered what is undermining the great American middle class that existed from about 1950-1980, this is your book. If you have ever wondered what the Reagan and Bush revolutions have meant to the average citizen, this is your book. If you want to know how the super wealthy (the top 1% of US taxpayers) got that way, this is your book.
There has been a radical revolution in the country over the last number of decades, but contrary to common association with the idea of revolution, it has been a revolution financed and led by a small minority who have managed to double their share of the Gross Domestic Product at the expense of everyone else. Everyone needs to read this investigative journalism by a Pulitzer prize winning professional.
