A review of the fine-looking book which concludes (surprise, surprise) that big money in elections rules.
From the review…
“Thomas Ferguson has worked for fifteen years to make two claims about democracy in the United States. First, ‘rule by the people’ is a sham, and always has been. Second, the social ‘sciences’ have badly botched the job of finding out why. Golden Rule is a collection of some highlights of this work, and anyone who wants to understand politics in America ought to read it.”
