Description: 

Why the Few Get Rich While Your Paycheck Shrinks

David Cay Johnston is the Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist, formerly with the New York Times and author of The Fine Print: How Big Companies Use Plain English to Rob You Blind.

America is marketed as the land of opportunity where anyone with a great idea, a work ethic, and a bit of luck can get rich. But the reality is this:  he already very rich have for three decades quietly built barriers to make sure they can earn huge profits with help from the politicians their campaign contributions put into office; and no one can compete against them.

While major news organizations cover the glitz, they have missed telling you the major economic stories unfolding in the public record.
