Welfare for the Rich AudioBook Summary
In today’s ultra-polarized and highly partisan political environment, Welfare for the Rich is one of the rare books written to appeal to engaged and open-minded citizens from across the political spectrum.
Welfare for the Rich is the first book to describe and analyze the many ways that federal and state governments provide handouts – subsidies, grants, tax credits, loan guarantees, price supports, and many other payouts – to millionaires, billionaires, and the companies they own and run. Many journalists, scholars, and activists have focused on one or more of these dysfunctional programs. A few of the most egregious examples have even become famous. But Welfare for the Rich is the first attempt to paint a comprehensive, easily accessible picture of a system largely designed by the richest Americans – through lobbyists, lawyers, political action committees, special interest groups, and other powerful influencers – with the specific goal of making sure the government keeps wealth and power flowing from the many to the few.
