pigs at the trough huffington arianna

Serving Millions of Book Lovers since 1980. Read it and weep—then head for the barricades. But they are emblematic of the tone deafness of those at the top of our crumbling economic pyramid. Call it propaganda, I don't care. Her sharp wit and thoughtful commentary help put issues on the agenda ignored by conventional thinkers. This brutal combination of rising need and lowered services has led to a growing sense of anxiety, uncertainty, and fear. I felt like the book just kept starting over and it never got exciting or interesting after reading about a ton of very similar incidents all talked about and made fun of in the same way.

pigs at the trough huffington arianna

I enjoyed the fact that this novel was written to prove in depth how greedy corporate America can actually be with undeniable evidence stated page by page. Though she couldn't, or wouldn't, say what had happened to her. In this bold and provocative audiobook, Yuval Noah Harari explores who we are, how we got here, and where we're going. Devastatingly funny and powerfully indicting, Pigs at the Trough is a rousing call to arms and a must-read for all those who are outraged by the scandalous state of corporate America. This is a great book if you like facts and figures about the economy but I don't know nor do I have time to check which are actually accurate. How has it been possible for corporate pigs to gorge themselves on grossly inflated pay packages and heaping helpings of stock options while the average American struggles to make do with their leftovers? Making the case that our public watchdogs have become little more than obedient lapdogs, unwilling to bite the corporate hand that feeds them, Arianna Huffington turns the spotlight on the tough reforms we must demand from Washington. Things go from bad to worse when he meets the wicked matron in charge of the children's ward.

It's so depressing to find out in detail just how morally corrupt the people we depend on the most for our countries financial well being.

With so many both on Wall Street and in the media tripping over themselves to return to the pre-meltdown status quo, it's easy to get blinded by the premature exuberance and hop on the green shoots bandwagon.

Huffington's tone as she talks about the ultra rich taking advantage of their wealth and access to power and government support is satisfying in some ways. Huffington is mad as hell, and rightly so. For years, credit card companies have been fattening their bottom lines with an ever-widening array of fees. Unemployment, already at levels not seen since 1983, is skyrocketing. Huffington uses the pigs metaphor to powerful and amusing effect.

We have work to do. How has it been possible for corporate pigs to gorge themselves on grossly inflated pay packages and heaping helpings of stock options while the average American struggles to make do with their leftovers? One of the ironies of the credit card crisis is that the financial industry laid the foundation for much of the trouble we are seeing with its full-throated—and deep-pocketed—support of the cynically named Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005, a truly loathsome piece of legislation that opened the door to many of the banking abuses currently ravaging the country.
