9780060735821: Selling Out: How Big Corporate Money Buys Elections, Rams Through Legislation, and Betrays Our Democracy

With CEOs and corporations under fire for years of outrageous deception and fraud, the time has come for Mark Green's groundbreaking book, Selling Out. A political watchdog and longtime crusader for better government, Green exposes the truth about the poisonous role money has come to play in our political culture. How are so many corporations able to buy political protection? Why do legislators pay more attention to contributors than to constituents? Filled with bold and practical solutions that are already working to return power to the American people, Selling Out is sure to inflame anyone who's stunned by the recent corporate scandals -- or who's curious about how so many have gotten away with so much for so long.

About the Author:

Mark Green's first book on campaign finance, Who Runs Congress?, was a number one New York Times bestseller in 1972. After working with Ralph Nader for ten years in Washington, Green served for twelve years as New York City's consumer affairs commissioner and then as its first elected public advocate. In 2001, he was the Democratic nominee for the office of mayor of New York against Michael Bloomberg. Currently a distinguished visiting lecturer at the New York University School of Law, he recently founded the New Democracy Project, a national and urban affairs institute. Green and his family live in New York City.
