Interview about Vampires – Wealthy Elites Misuse Government

January 22nd, 2008 No comments

In an interview, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Cay Johnston refers to “Corporate socialism for the politically connected rich” and discusses how the politically connected rich have gamed the system to line their pockets from the public purse and at the expense of free and open competition – the theme of his new book, Free Lunch: How the Wealthiest Americans Enrich Themselves at Government Expense (And Stick You with the Bill).

The interview is here:


“I hope we shall crush … in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations, which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength and bid defiance to the laws of our country.”
–Thomas Jefferson, 1816.
