David Cay Johnston, a reporter for The New York Times for thirteen years, is the author of Perfectly Legal and Free Lunch  - both New York Times'  bestsellers.  He is also the president of Investigative Reporters and Editors, and the recipient of a Pulitzer Prize.  In The Fine Print, he reveals just how major corporations work with the government to relax rules, re-write regulations, and enforce only the rules that benefit them. All of this is done without the consumer's knowledge, and it costs every American family money they cannot afford to lose.

"With clarity, conciseness, and cool, fact-saturated analysis, Mr. Johnson, the premier investigative reporter on how industry and commerce shift risks and costs to takpayers, sends the ultimate message to all Americanseither we demand to have a say or we will continue to pay, pay, pay" -- Ralph Nader

"Everyone pays for a rigged economy, in a myriad of ways," Johnston writes. "It extracts money from the many and concentrates it in the hands of the few. In doing so, it squanders opportunities, wastes valuable skills, costs more in taxes and adds risks.It also helps our economic competitors by making us less efficient. Just as poor health damages the quality of life, a weakened economy damages the quality of life for all, including even the few gorging on the stolen fruit of the nation's economic output,"
"Perfectly Legal will make you mad as hell. Even if you suspected all along that the system favors the rich, you're going to be shocked to learn just how badly you're being screwed." -- Greg Palast

Bonnie Faukner is the producer and host of KPFA's investigative  journalism
Show, Guns & Butter.
