really liked it
Read from April 18 to May 24, 2012

I heard just a snippet of an interview on Diane Rehm show:

Big business is as big a threat to our economy as "big government". Rothkopf explains why.

This was an important followup to Rothkopf's last book, "Superclass". it is a must read for those who are convinced that big business needs a free hand in the world market. Somehow, the market will magically "regulate" itself. Walmart, Exxon, Goldmann Sachs, --and if they still had a share of the game, Enron, want you to believe that.

The balance has shifted, and there is a reason why Wall Street had much to do with the 2008-2008 financial disaster and was then a major beneficiary of the various bailouts.

You will be surprised by this book. well worth the time.
