 About the Book 

This is a timely book on explaining how the 1% gamed the political system to get the biggest economic advantage in moderen history. The economy is no accident, it is the result of deliberate actions by a few conservative groups. The book begins with how it started in the 70s to the current political situation and this economy. The book is a must read for the 2012 election cycle to understand what these terms being thrown about really mean. The explanations of free trade, free market, trickle down economics, the real spending problem, medicare, social security, government workers, and what taxes really pay for, are so relevant to todays conversation. What we all need is fair trade, fair markets, investing in America, protecting safety nets and the middle class, and pay as you go. We need to pay it forward to win the 21st century for the 99% of us that have been left behind by todays policies.
