Summary
Why is America living in an age of profound economic inequality? Why, despite the desperate need to address climate change, have even modest environmental efforts been defeated again and again? Why have protections for employees been decimated? Why do hedge-fund billionaires pay a far lower tax rate than middle-class workers? The conventional answer is that a popular uprising against “big government” led to the ascendancy of a broad-based conservative movement. But as Jane Mayer shows in this powerful, meticulously reported history, a network of exceedingly wealthy people with extreme libertarian views bankrolled a systematic, step-by-step plan to fundamentally alter the American political system
Summary
An investigation into the growing radical right reveals a network of wealthy people with extreme Libertarian views, led by the Koch brothers, that has been systematically influencing and controlling academic institutions, the courts, and the United States government

  • A popular uprising against "big government" led to the ascendancy of a broad-based conservative movement. But Mayer shows that a network of exceedingly wealthy people with extreme libertarian views bankrolled a systematic, step-by-step plan to fundamentally alter the American political system. Their core beliefs-- that taxes are a form of tyranny; that government oversight of business is an assault on freedom-- are sincerely held. The chief figures in the network are Charles and David Koch. Mayer traces the trail of the billions of dollars spent by their network, and provides vivid portraits of the colorful figures behind the new American oligarchy
