The Best Democracy Money Can Buy
The Truth about Corporate Cons, Globalization, and High-Finance Fraudsters (2004)
by Greg Palast (1952-)
Greg Palast is often assumed to be British, because his work commonly appears in The Guardian and The Observer newspapers, as well as on BBC. However, he is an American investigative reporter, working in a country where no media outlet is willing to risk employing him or using his work. This in itself is a depressing fact about America in these times.
The actual material is even more depressing. Reading it must convince anyone that the people in the most wealthy and powerful circles of our society are thoroughly corrupt.
