9781841197142: The Best Democracy Money Can Buy

Palast, an investigative reporter, spent five years trying to find out what is really going on in politics and big business. In this volume he reveals what PR companies, lobbyists and politicians spend their time keeping hidden. Using sources inside the global institutions he establishes that the IMF and the World Bank serve the interests of the very rich in Europe and America. In a series of sting operations he reveals how far the Labour government was prepared to go in its attempts to gain the support of big business, and his report on the American presidental election makes it clear that the wrong man is in the White House.

About the Author:

Greg Palast's undercover reports and his column in The Observer won the Financial Times David Thomas Prize. Salon.com chose his report on the US elections in 2000 as 'Political Story of the Year'. Greg Palast divides his time between London and New York.

From AudioFile:

Those who prefer to see the world through rose-colored glasses will not enjoy this collection. It's the type of investigative journalism that mainstream media avoid for fear of censorship or accusations of libel. Is it true? The listener will have to decide. The presentation features an all-star cast of readers, renowned for their sympathy with liberal causes. The roll call includes Ed Asner, Al Franken, and Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney. They tell a story of international intrigue that reaches from the oil fields of Texas to the gold mines of Africa to the ballot boxes of Florida. This is political commentary that, unfortunately, may ring with truth. J.W. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
