Who filled the trough? Who set the table at the banquet of greed? How has it been possible for corporate pigs to gorge themselves on grossly inflated pay packages and heaping helpings of stock options while the average American struggles to make due with their leftovers?
Provocative political commentator Arianna Huffington yanks back the curtain on the unholy alliance of CEOs, politicians, lobbyists, and Wall Street bankers who have shown a brutal disregard for those in office cubicles and on factory floors.
The media have put their fingers on pieces of the sordid puzzle, but Pigs at the Trough presents the whole ugly picture of what's really going on for the first time: a blistering, wickedly witty portrait of exactly how and why the worst and the greediest are running American business and government into the ground. Arianna Huffington turns the spotlight on the tough reforms we must demand from Washington to stop the voracious corporate predators from eating away at the very foundations of our democracy.
Devastatingly funny and powerfully indicting, Pigs at the Trough is a rousing call to arms and essential listening for all those who are outraged by the scandalous state of corporate America.
