Predator nation : corporate criminals, political corruption, and the hijacking of America by Charles H Ferguson( Book )

22 editions published between 2012 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the last several decades, the United States has undergone one of the most radical social and economic transformations in its history: Finance has become America's dominant industry, while manufacturing has nearly disappeared. The financial sector has become increasingly criminalized, with widespread fraud going completely unpunished. Federal tax collections are at their lowest level in sixty years, with the wealthy enjoying the greatest tax reductions. Most shockingly, the United States, so long the beacon of opportunity for the ambitious poor, has become one of the world's most unequal societies. If you're smart and a hard worker, but your parents aren't rich, you're now better off being born in Munich or Singapore than in Cleveland or New York. This radical shift did not happen by accident. Author Ferguson shows how, since the Reagan administration, both major political parties have become captives of the moneyed elite. The Clinton administration dismantled the regulatory controls that protected the average citizen from avaricious financiers. The Bush team destroyed the federal revenue base with its tax cuts for the rich. And the Obama White House has allowed financial criminals to continue to operate unchecked, even after supposed "reforms" installed after the collapse of 2008.--From publisher description
No end in sight : Iraq's descent into chaos by Charles H Ferguson( Book )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 807 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A ... chronicle of the reasons behind Iraq's descent into guerrilla war, warlord rule, criminality, and anarchy ... It features candid interviews with high-ranking officials ... as well as Iraqi civilians, American soldiers, intelligence officers, and prominent analysts ... Together, these voices reveal the principal errors of U.S. policy -- using insufficient troop levels, allowing the looting of Baghdad, purging professionals from the Iraq government, and disbanding the Iraqi military -- errors that largely created the insurgency and chaos that engulf Iraq today. The book brings the movie up-to-date by evaluating the military's recent 'surge' tactic as well as current administration policy. It concludes with a wide-ranging debate on the crucial question: what do we do now?"--Page 4 of cover

Inside job ein Film über die Finanzkrise 2008( )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Seit 2007 befindet sich die Welt in einer chronischen Wirtschafts- und Finanzkrise, die im Jahr 2012 ihren Höhepunkt noch nicht erreicht zu haben scheint. Der mit dem "Oscar" ausgezeichnete Dokumentarfilm geht den Ausgangspunkten sowie den Mechanismen auf den Grund, die die Welt an den Abgrund eines wirtschaftlichen und sozialen Supergaus bringen konnten. Dabei entlarvt er in Interviews mit Bankern, Politikern und Wirtschaftsprofessoren jene, die in ihrer Ignoranz maßgeblich und ohne Schuldbewusstsein die Verantwortung tragen. Die inszenatorisch furiose Dokumentation zeigt anschaulich auf, in welchem Wahnsinn die Welt gefangen ist." [film-dienst.de]
