The Best Democracy Money Can Buy: an Investigative Reporter Exposes the Truth About Globalization, Corporate Cons, and High Finance Fraudsters.
This book is for everyone who has not forgotten the stolen election--and everyone who shouldn't have forgotten it. The Best Democracy Money Can Buy is a collection of investigative articles Palast wrote for the British press. The California native has trouble finding homeland employment security: The U.S. corporate media has little use for his investigations into Florida's "ethnically cleansed" voter rolls, Pat Robertson's financial empire, or the pick-pocketing of California's energy ratepayers.
But Palast doesn't cut his British hosts any slack. The book ends with frightening articles about how professional lobbyists, following a soulless creed of consumption, commodify U.K. government policy.
