Let them Eat Tweets: How the Right Rules in an Age of Extreme Inequality

Plutocrats. Spend a little while reading Jacob S. Hacker and Paul Pierson’s book titled, Let Them Eat Tweets: How the Right Rules in an Age of Extreme Inequality, and you’ll begin to marvel about how a tiny minority of successful American plutocrats have gotten unpopular things done to their advantage. Hacker and Pierson describes the methods by which a few rich and powerful individuals have commandeered the levers of political power and built up unlikely coalitions to protect or enhance wealth and power for the few. This effort has been building over a long period of time and the current environment is the consequence of gradual changes and incremental steps. Readers interested in public policy and political science are those most likely to enjoy this engaging book. In case you haven’t noticed, this is a great time in America to be a plutocrat. The authors of this book explain why and how that happened. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Let Them Eat Tweets from
