A book review

In these pages I’ve referred to many books written by those rare truth-tellers who have not bargained with Beelzebub.  To list a few: Paul Krugman, Joseph Stiglitz, David Cay Johnston, David Korten, Michelle Alexander, Noam Chomsky, Nomi Prins, Naomi Klein, Fred Magdorf etc.  But if I was to make a selection of one book to bring to the proverbial desert island, it would have to be Matt Taibbi’s “Divide – American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap.”  Almost every page dealing with those who have been cheated, scammed and falsely imprisoned, brings the feeling “There but for the grace of God go I!” even to an atheist. This is the ultimate diagnosis of a society that should be immediately admitted to the Intensive Care Unit
