This is an excellent book that concisely informs us that Wall Street and their Republican friends have rigged the economy in their favor. Not yours. Their goal is a dystopian society that serves only them. Had the other reviewers actually read this book they would see that trickle down economics is pure fantasy and that deregulation grows the economy is a lie. Elizabeth factually ticks off the real life tragedies of workers and families caused by the 1%, corporations and conservative ideology. Her book is a call to action to check the 1%, corporations and the right before they reduce the middle class to nothing. This book should have been titled "Profiles in Cowardice".
