Robbing Us Blind: The Return of the Bush Gang & the Mugging of America
A century ago, Kansas farmers called them "The Robber Barons" and Teddy Roosevelt singled them out as "malefactors of great wealth." Steve Brouwer rigorously marshals the devastating evidence and indicts the Bush Gang for encouraging a corporate crime wave (Savings and Loan scandals of the 1980s; Harkin and Halliburton; Enron, WorldCom and Arthur Anderson) and promoting the greatest economic inequality since the 1920s. While Brouwer teases the Bushes for following the "Skull and Bones" flag of their elite Yale club, he also -levels the serious charge that they are "pirates." The richest 1% of Americans grabs 20.3% of our national income. They have overwhelmed democracy with campaign bribery. Brouwer's book is indispensable to ousting the buccaneers. Steve Brouwer has been writing for two decades.
