LaGuardia Library Book of the Week: Predator Nation

Predator Nation: Corporate Criminals, Political Corruption, and the Hijacking of America by Charles H. Ferguson

cover of ''Predator Nation: Corporate Criminals, Political Corruption, and the Hijacking of America''

"In Predator Nation, Ferguson exposes the networks of academic, government, and congressional influence—in all recent administrations, including Obama's--that prepared the path to conquest. He reveals how once-revered figures like Alan Greenspan and Larry Summers have become mere courtiers to the elite. And based on many newly released court filings, he details the extent of the crimes--there is no other word—committed in the frenzied chase for storied wealth that marked the 2000s. And, finally, he lays out a brief plan of action for how we might take it back.

"A tightly argued, profusely footnoted and deeply enraged castigation of everyone involved, Predator Nation isn’t just a factually unchallengeable account of how Wall Street blew up the global economy. It's a denunciation, a call for justice and a warning."—Salon
