A bestselling author's shocking analysis of the many ways we are victimized by corporations
David Cay Johnston, the bestselling author of "Perfectly Legal "and "Free Lunch," is famous for exposing the perfidies of our biggest institutions. Now he turns his attention to the ways huge corporations hide sneaky stipulations in just about every contract, often with government permission.
No other modern country gives corporations the unfettered power found in America to gouge customers, shortchange workers, and erect barriers to fair play. Johnston shares solutions you can use to fight back against the obscure fees and taxes, and to help end these devious practices.
