Johnston brings up many points that cost American people and companies excessive money. It will help you understand how we have created the mess that we are in. Primarily he is saying a couple things that I took away; large corporations have excessive influence on what and how something is over regulated or insufficiently regulated & many of our important services (utilities and transportation) are essentially monopolies. Money buys power and influence which is pretty much common knowledge.

David Cay Johnston continues to amaze. I'm learning much about how Goverment and Corporations bilk the common family out of funds that should go to the betterment of all society.
