GRIFTOPIA Bubble Machines, Vampire Squids, and the Long Con That Is Breaking America

by | Read by Patrick Egan

Contemporary Culture • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Think you understood the Wall Street collapse and what's going on in America? Read Matt Taibbi's GRIFTOPIA, and you'll realize two things: You don’t have a clue what happened, and things are worse than either the right or the left can imagine. Taibbi, a contributing editor to ROLLING STONE, explains that the reason people aren't gathered outside Wall Street institutions with pitchforks and torches is that the financial system has been deliberately made so complex that few understand it. Patrick Egan performs the book with a voice that sounds like a man barely keeping his rage inside, a style that is the perfect for this story of theft, deceit, and betrayal. It’s still happening. This is a true crime story. M.S. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2011]
