it was amazing
bookshelves: economics
Recommended to Maura by: Dr. Schweickart
Recommended for: AMERICANS
Read in July, 2007

This is a TERRIFYING, DEPRESSING but MUST-READ book giving an insider's perspective into American corporate amorality.

I appreciate that the author wrote this book and honestly detailed his role in the exploitation of less-developed countries. The author's company worked on the assumption that everyone in power is corruptible; heartbreakingly, this turned out to be almost entirely accurate. I strongly disliked the author for the irreparable damage he's done to countless innocent people in less-developed countries. Damn greedy Westerners like him have ruined the world!

Erik Graff I note that you report David recommended this book to you. I recently read it myself on another's recommendation.

Have you looked at Schweickart's biography on GoodReads? If you've read any of his books, review 'em. Encourage him to get active. It's a good way of promoting worthy materials.
