    • how and why the richest 1 (one ) percent have come to own more wealth than the combined wealth of the bottom 90 (ninety) percent
    • why the elected Congress continues to pass discriminating tax shelter laws that make the rich richer and the poor poorer
    • why and how voters have been left with less influence than lobbyists
    • why so many of America's politicians can openly break the law ...but remain virtually immune from prosecution
    • why Wall Street has been preoccupied with leveraged buyouts and mergers, and how they are fleecing the country
    • why the price of housing has increased to the extent that owning a home is no longer an expectation for many
    • why workers' wages are steadily dropping, and why America's manufacturing plants continue to close down
    • why the baby boomers may not have a pension when they retire
    • why the education system is graduating functional illiterates
