IS MORE THAN JUST A WORK
OF POLITICAL JOURNALISM ~~~
it´s a vital portrait of a nation that, as
perhaps never before, is being shaped by
a few very rich, extremely conservative businessmen!
Why is also America again living in an age of profound & widening
economic inequality? Why do billionaire candidates & contributors dominate
our elections? Why have even modest attempts to address climate change been
defeated again & again? Why do hedge-fund billionaires pay a far lower tax rate than
middle-class workers? In a rivering & indelible feat of reporting, Jane Mayer illuminates
the history of an elite cadre of bloodsucking plutocrats - headed by Kochs, Scaifes, Olins &
Bradleys - who have bankrolled a systematic plan to fundamentally alter the USA political system?
JM traces a byzantine trail of billions of $$ spent by the network, revealing a staggering conglomeration of think tanks, academic institutions, media groups, courthouses, & government allies that have fallen under their sphere of influence.
Drawing from hundreds of exclusive interviews, as well as extensive scrutiny of public records, private papers, & court proceedings, JM provides vivid portraits of the secretive figures behind the new oily cowboy Yankees & a searing look at the carefully concealed agendas steering
this dj Trumpish nation of nuts & bolts. DarkMoney is an essential book for anyone
who cares about the future of Western Democracy &
wants to make sense
of our politics......
