As the author writes in the book's conclusion: "This book gives you the ammo needed to unleash a hurricane of humiliation. A courtesy flush won't do. The entire system needs cleansing. So get to work."
I expected a deconstruction of crony capitalism (which Mattera coins "Crapitalism") including how it developed, how it is used today (and by whom), why it is potentially destroying our economy - and our country - and how we can bring an end to it. I did not expect a portrait of 27 people (mostly old white men) who are our country's most offending examples of Crapitalism. For that reason, I can't give this book more than 3 stars. I liked it, but Mattera is smart enough to do a better job than thi [...]
This was a very frustrating book to read because the topic of discussion was quite infuriating. I would not be as opposed to paying taxes if I felt that our tax dollars were being spent responsibly and judiciously. This book validated what I always believed to be true, and revealed that the problem is much worse than any of us would have ever expected.I am certain that the first criticism of this book is going to be that it is "anti-Democrat and anti-Obama" and critics will say that there are ab [...]
Lots of good information. However, I think Mattera focused too much on the Obama administration. I think if you look at things like political donations, you will see increases every 4 years, no matter which party is in power. Also fundraising has been on a dramatic rise since before the Clinton administration. OK, so no news there.For folks who like to see the both sides of every coin, this book will make you feel like it is a little one-sided. I am slightly conservative and I felt a little unco [...]
Example after example about the corrupt system in the USA. While I was familiar with some of these "crimes," there was so much more about them that I was unaware of. It's truly disturbing to what degree our system is broken. I read often about our government/politicians, the many government agencies, big-business, etc but there is not as much published on these lobbyists and PACs and money-bundlers. The examples in this book show the revolving door in Washington and in some cases the local level [...]
I found my eyes glazing over half way through this book. It was shady politician after shady politician and all the names just blurred together after a while.
The problem with these books is that they are written by biased authors, who only skew their opponents. If this book had been written by a Democrat, I'd have loved it.
