Dean Baker: "How the Wealthy Use the Government to Stay Rich and Get Richer"

I was surprised recently, checking the publication notes page of Dean Baker’s book The Conservative Nanny State: How the Wealthy Use the Government to Stay Rich and Get Richer, to find that it uses a Creative Commons license. And in fact, it’s available to read online for free (though also well worth ordering). Here are the parts in overview:

  1. Doctors and Dishwashers: How the Nanny State Creates Good Jobs for Those at the Top
  2. The Workers are Gettting Uppity: Call In the Fed!
  3. The Secret of High CEO Pay and Other Mysteries of the Corporation
  4. Bill Gates – Welfare Mom: How Government Patent and Copyright Monopolies Enrich the Rich and Distort the Economy
  5. Mommy, Joey Owes Me Money: How Bankruptcy Laws Are Bailing Out the Rich
  6. The Rigged Legal Deck: Torts and Takings (The Nanny State Only Gives)
  7. Small Business Babies
  8. Taxes: It’s Not Your Money
  9. Don’t Make Big Business Compete Against Government Bureaucrats
