I wish I had read this book a few months ago - oh wait it wasn't published then.

An incisive, easy to read book where people are "hung on their own petard". Really..... everyone (or at least those who have money interests in the US..or live there)really should read this. It is one thing to lie with statistics.....but to just lie.....well make your own judgement.

BTW even though this book is not in stock at Amazon it ships for free (right away) from yeahrightbook.com ;)

This book is timeless. A must read for everyone of voting age. The republicans must think we have no memory at all. Read what republican politicians have said, then think about who you are voting for.

Remember the assurances by Bush, Bernanke, Greenspan and Paulson that our economy was solid as a rock? This priceless book documents the utter incompetence of our economic and political elite.

Now these same people tell us we "must" have a trillion dollars more on top of the $700 billion TARP program to bail out rich people who did dumb things .... or... we are told, doom will destroy us.

Can these people be trusted with one trillion dollars more of our money.

Read this book and see if you'd like a tax increase to pay for all this.
