Description:
The goal of the book is to enable ordinary readers to understand that the economy we live in operates primarily to the advantage of those with a specific interest in profit. This has been true since the eighteenth century. On the other hand, the book is not intended to be an extended attack on capitalism. The benefit of the system for large numbers of Americans is recognized, but it is also noted that such benefit is uncommon and secondary.
