Swindled is a political, socio-economic, financial, and philosophical treatise on the state of our dysfunctional society. It is a brutally candid expose of political self-interest and economic self-interest. And how our democracy, founded on the primary principle "of the people, by the people and for the people" (Lincoln's Gettysburg Address) has become a political system of the lobbyists, by the ultra rich and for the ultra rich and their special interests.
"With keen intellect and searing wit, Henry Schoenberger's How We Got Swindled exposes the myriad of financial hijinks and colossal leadership failures that have turned the first decade of the new century into an economic disaster. Schoenberger not only identifies the causes, rationales and human failings that led to this mess; he provides some ready answers for how we must go about fixing it. This should be must-reading for every policy maker in Washington and every student of economics and finance."
