A couple of years ago Timothy Noah's series, the beginnings of this book, were in a ten part series in I posted the full series at Care2. That was excellent and I have ordered the book from Barnes and Noble. I highly recommend Noah, he is an excellent researcher and writer.

Rich control money so that is ot their goal. Control is their aphrodisiac. Tey wat to cotrol people by making them slaves and reduce population by 80-90 %. Then chip the rest and play god.

MLK said that there can be no real freedom without economic freedom--and one take is that those with generational money and the few that climbed to join their ranks with the help of taxpayer funded infrastructure want to ensure that few enjoy that freedom

So long as there is equality of opportunity, disparities in wealth do not concern me. I suspect that I would agree with Mr. Noah in part and disagree with him on other issues.
