The More Riches, the More Stitches,
This review is from: Downsize This! Random Threats from an Unarmed American (Paperback)
The nice thing about coming late in a book review is that my review will show up first for a long time to come. This book is about the problems facing the nation back in the mid 1990s. Unfortunately those same problems continue to plague us today and not much has been done to make things better.
The biggest issue covered is how big companies fire many workers when at the same time the companies are reporting huge profits and getting all kinds of tax breaks, hence the more riches, the more stitches. These companies contribute to the campaigns of politicians and the politicians support big business back with the tax breaks. This scenario is all wrong and destroys people's lives.
Other issues covered that are still plaguing us today include racism, immigration, abortion, and the little differences between the two major parties.
The book is funny at times, easy to read, and suggests ways for fighting back, such as running for local office and doing some whistle blowing.
