Everybody Knows : Corruption in America, Hardback Book

Everybody Knows : Corruption in America Hardback

Hardback

Description

America is corrupted, and everybody knows it. Vested interests have bent government powers to serve themselves, not the citizens, with dizzying results -- egregious Supreme Court rulings, revolving doors and cozy deals between the state and the private sector, and forty years of financial meltdowns. In this blistering book, Sarah Chayes shows that today's corruption -- even the venality of the Trump administration -- is part of global history, going back to the invention of money itself.

We're not dealing with 'bad apples' lining individual pockets, but the widespread standard practice of sophisticated networks spanning political and national boundaries.

But we can change this, individually, collectively and politically. Searching and unflinching, 'Everybody Knows' exposes a rigged system that strangles democracy, calling on readers everywhere to challenge it.
