Do you ever wonder if there’s a connection between the corruption scandals in the news and the steady decline in the uality of life for millions of Americans Do you ever wonder what corporations get for the millions of dollars they pour into the American political system Do you ever think the government has been hijacked by forces hostile to average Americans Do you ever want to fight back Millions of Americans lack health care and millions struggle to afford it Politicians claim they care then pass legislation that just sends cash to the HMOs Wages have been stagnant for thirty years even as corporate profits skyrocket Politicians say they want to fix the problem and then pass bills written by lobbyists that drive wages even lower and punish those.

review ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ò David Sirota

G it may make you ill with anger I m not really sure how to rate this I m a card carrying singer in the choir obviously and so I didn t learn anything new from this But if the book is hopefully getting a wider audience than the choir I guess the uestion is how effective these arguments would be on the benighted masses My guess maybe optimistic is that half will hit home the other half will come across as as spin or demagoguery or something like that not because the argument is not sound or true but because it sounds too much like partisan or ideological spin because of the author s blustery tone This might not be the best voice for transmitting the message I m sad to say because I can definitely identify with the anger and indignation behind it and certainly I endorse the message Despite being on an airplane and having nothing else to do I couldn t get past page 35 It was pretty screedy didn t tell me anything I didn t already now yet presented it as startling new information and was generally annoying Which is too bad I actually agree with his slant but this book wasn t for me I actually thought this was a different book which he mentioned a couple of times so maybe I ll try Crushed by debt Jobs are being shipped overseas pensions are being cut and energy is becoming unaffordable And our government concerned about maintaining its corporate sponsorship than protecting its citizens does nothing about it In Hostile Takeover David Sirota a major new voice in American politics seeks to open the eyes of ordinary Americans to the fact that corporate interests have undermined democracy aided and abetted by their lackeys in our allegedly representative government At a time when and of America’s major political leaders are being indicted or investigated for corruption Sirota takes readers on a journey that shows how all of this nefarious behavior happened right under our noses and how the high profile scandals are merely one prod.
