    schema:description ""Four years ago, the world's financial system began to suffer an epic breakdown - the result of decades of letting banks and brokers off the leash. How weird, then, is it that America is now experiencing a people's uprising demanding that we embrace the free market, hand the banks as much control as they want and lurch to the political right? How on earth did this happen and, as America gears up for another Presidential election, what happens next? Pity the Billionaire is about the financial crash - how it came about and the perversity of wanting to reward the very people who wrecked everything; it draws comparisons with the Great Depression and F.D. Roosevelt's presidency; and it gazes in bafflement and astonishment at Glenn Beck, Fox News, and the outlandish spectacle of Sarah Palin and the birth and rise of the Tea Party. Thomas Frank's writing is articulate, energetic and infectiously furious. With authority and a wonderful sense of humour, Pity the Billionaire explains why the state we're in is unprecedentedly strange and what we have to do to get out of it"--Publisher's description."@en ;
