Infuriated by government corruption, incensed by "banksters" shaking down taxpayers, and despairing of the healthcare system, the dependency on foreign oil, and the failing educational system, Dylan Ratigan sees an America that is botched almost beyond repair. In this book, his first, he rips the lid off of the deeply crooked system-and offers a way out.

The American public knows that the game is rigged. The stats back it up: Unemployment has exploded to near 25-year highs, now approaching 10%, even as the Great Recession has supposedly ended. Fifteen million homeowners are now underwater in their mortgages, the richest 1% of the nation now takes home 24% of the wealth, up from 9% in 1976. Dylan Ratigan understands the rot at America's core, and he's not afraid to call it for what it is. Ratigan is this movement's mouthpiece, and this book is a compilation of brash and fresh solutions for building a new and better America.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book might be the smelling salts that wake up America."-Alan Grayson
"Greedy Bastards is superb. Dylan's policy recommendations track with what the Committee for Economic Development has been saying on: health care, the federal deficit, corporate governance, education, a consumption tax, and campaign finance reform. His explanations are clear, and he nails health care with his criticism of the fee-for-service model. Greedy Bastards deserves wide readership!"-Charles Kolb, President of the Committee on Economic Development
"Some books explain a problem, this book gives you an entire world view. Greedy Bastards, puts everything in context and makes the enormity and entirety of our crises understandable. Dylan, as always, is incisive, sharp and pointed." -Eliot Spitzer
"Greedy Bastards is a fantastic book! It has the perfect tone and is completely convincing." -Lawrence Lessig, Director of the Edmond J. Safra Foundation Center for Ethics at Harvard University and Professor of Law at Harvard Law School
"Exiles on Wall Street like us have a platform and a responsibility to speak out. Dylan's book shows that our problems don't stem from too much capitalism but not enough of it relative to our jerry-rigged system" -Mike Mayo, financial analyst and author of Exile on Wall Street
"Very sharp, funny, and splendidly written, Dylan Ratigan's new book is perfect for Americans disgusted with both our political parties who are trying to understand the roots of our broken economy and political system." - Thomas Ferguson, University of Massachusetts, Boston and the Roosevelt Institute and author of Golden Rule
"Readers will find a great deal to ponder, as Ratigan covers why and how he's certain the USA is 'going seriously wrong.'"-USA Today
"Ratigan delivers an energetic, powerful, and at times unsettling portrait of America in crisis ... And even though his portrait of the U.S. is bleak, he believes we have options."-Publishers Weekly
"Greedy Bastards helps us better understand why we suffer recurrent, intensifying financial crises. First, cheating has become the dominant strategy in finance. Second, cheating is dominant because finance CEOs create such intensely perverse incentives that fraud becomes endemic."- Bill Black, author of The Best Way to Rob a Bank is to Own One and associate professor of economics and law at the University of Missouri-Kansas City
