Unhealthy charities : hazardous to your health and wealth by James T Bennett( Book )

8 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unhealthy Charities argues that the original mission of the leading health charities - helping the needy - has been subverted in a quest for fund-raising that benefits primarily the executives of the organizations and the medical establishment. Examining such groups as the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association, and the American Lung Association, the authors conclude that health charities hinder rather than help disease research - or at best play a minor role in the research arena, despite their claims. Many individual programs are of dubious content and merit. "Public education" programs are often little more than fund-raising efforts. And the poor, ironically, are less well served by our charitable organizations than are other groups
Official lies : how Washington misleads us by James T Bennett( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From welfare to drugs to defense, Uncle Sam consistently misrepresents problems so that his muscles can grow ever larger. Poverty statistics have been systematically overblown in order to win greater spending on social programs. (Astonishingly, 22,000 households officially designated as "poor" own Jacuzzis or heated swimming pools.). Agricultural aid, advertised as a balm to ailing all-American families right out of Norman Rockwell, has in fact showered millionaire farmers (including the Prince of Liechtenstein!) with a bounty of taxpayers' dollars. Official Lies takes on the preposterous scare stories: the myth of global warming (or a new ice age, depending on the computer one uses and the weather in Washington), the poison apple hoax, the asbestos mess, and others. Behind each of these hoodwinkings is the most powerful special interest in the world - the U.S. government - seeking to enhance its own power

Remember when "socialism" was a dirty word? Now students at America's elite universities are parroting socialist talking points and "sure-thing" Hillary Clinton is struggling to win the Democratic nomination against a 74-year-old avowed socialist who promises to make the nation more like Europe. What's happened? Do Americans need a reminder about the dangers of socialist ideology and practices? Thomas DiLorenzo, economics professor and senior fellow at the Ludwig von Mises Institute, deconstructs the retrograde ideology that has suddenly become disturbingly hip in The Problem with Socialism
