Bad Money: Reckless Finance, Failed Politics, and the Global Crisis of American Capitalism
—By Kevin Phillips (Viking)
The author builds on his 2006 bestseller, American Theocracy, by naming Wall Street and Washington as symbiotic culprits proselytizing a blind faith in finance that portends America's economic decline in the mold of Hapsburg Spain, maritime Holland, and imperial Britain.
