How Elite Power Brokers Corrupt Our Finances, Freedom, and Security

By Janine R. Wedel
Narrated by Pam Ward / 11 hours 34 minutes

A groundbreakingbook that challenges Americans to reevaluate our views on how corruption andprivate interest have infiltrated every level of society

From the Tea Party to Occupy Wall Street, however divergenttheir political views, these groups seem united by one thing: outrage over asystem of power and influence that they feel has stolen their livelihoods andliberties. Increasingly, protesters on both ends of the political spectrum andthe media are using the word corrupt to describe an elusory system of powerthat has shed any accountability to those it was meant to help and govern.

But what does corruption and unaccountability mean intoday’s world? It is far more toxic and deeply rooted than bribery. From superPACs pouring secret money into our election system to companies buying betterratings from Standard & Poor’s or the extreme influence of lobbyists in Congress, all embody a “new corruption” and remain unaccountable to oursociety’s supposed watchdogs, which sit idly alongside the same groups thathave brought the government, business, and much of the military into theirpocket.
