FEATURING THOM HARTMANN – The American economy today is utterly dominated by massive companies that have monopolies on what we eat, wear, drive, bank, shop, and consume. When recessions hit in the modern era, our tax dollars bail out corporations that we are told are “too-big-to-fail.”
My next guest has written a powerful book about corporate monopolies in which he explains, “How Big Business Destroyed the American Dream.”
Thom Hartmann, renowned progressive radio talk show host, New York Times bestselling author who has written more than two dozen books including several that are part of his new Hidden History series. His latest book is called The Hidden History of Monopolies: How Big Business Destroyed the American Dream.
