Greedy Bastards: How We Can Stop Corporate Communists, Banksters, and Other Vampires from Sucking America DryAuthor/Actors/Director/etc.: Dylan Ratigan
Publisher: Simon & Schuster (2012, Jan 10th).
Dylan Ratigan is mad as hell. Infuriated by government corruption and corporate communism, incensed by banksters shaking down taxpayers, and despairing of an ailing health care system, an age-old dependency on foreign oil, and a failing educational system, Ratigan sees an America that has allowed itself to be swindled and robbed. In this book, his first, he rips the lid off our deeply crooked system—and offers a way out. This country, now more than ever, needs passionate debate and smart policy, a brazen willingness to scrap what doesn’t work, and the entrepreneurial spirit to try what does. Ratigan has compiled brash and fresh solutions for building a new and better America, and with this book he has started the debate America deserves. moreMore Info | Google Books | Check Availability
