Thom Hartman, four-time winner of the Project Censored Award, New York Times bestselling author of thirty-two books, and America's #1 progressive talk radio show host speaks about the latest volume in his popular and informative “Hidden Histories” series. The Hidden History of Monopolies: How Big Business Destroyed the American Dream (Berrett-Koehler) takes on the monopolies that dominate and control much of our economic system. Noting that monopolies have massive political power, he examines the consequences of monopoly control of industries such as agriculture, healthcare, the media and more and suggests some commonsense, historically rooted measures such as revitalizing antitrust regulation, taxing great wealth, and getting money out of politic.
“Never one to shy away from the truth, Thom Hartmann has written books that are inspiring, wise, and compelling. His work lights the way to a better America.” ―Van Jones, CNN political contributor and New York Times bestselling author of Beyond the Messy Truth.
Previous books in this series have addressed voting rights, guns and the Second Amendment and the Supreme Court.
