A Book to Read and Love: Dark Money - Jane Mayer

 


A short summary of Dark Money:

The hidden history of the Koch brothers and the rise of the radical right.

My favorite quote from the book:

"They were among a small, rarefied group of hugely wealthy, archconservative families that for decades poured money, often with little public disclosure, into influencing how Americans thought and voted."


Questions to ponder while reading Dark Money:

Which special interest groups have you listened to?

Who owns the politicians you vote for?

My thoughts about the book:

A detailed look into special interest groups and the Koch brothers.

Lobbyist organizations really should be for profit.

The left uses the same loopholes as the right.
