MAKERS AND TAKERS The Rise and Finance and the Fall of American Business

by | Read by Rachel Fulginiti, Rana Forooher [Fore.]

Business & Finance • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Distinguished financial reporter Rana Foroohar offers penetrating arguments and plenty of evidence that American banks and businesses are threatening our economy by prioritizing investment over actual work. The author reads the forward and introduction with such relaxed confidence and skill that when voice-pro Rachel Fulginiti begins narrating, the transition is seamless. Both narrate with a compelling mix of vocal appeal and determination. Foroohar says that financial institutions are engaged in investment schemes that risk another economic meltdown. The consolidation of money at the top fosters disproportionate political power, unhealthy income disparity, and the enrichment of investors at the expense of ordinary Americans. If our economic system feels unfair, this powerhouse audio will convince you that it is and explain why. T.W. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2018]
