9780988726727: Crony Capitalism in America: 2008-2012

We see it everywhere:
· shady zoning regulations in a small town;
· taxpayer money diverted into political campaigns;
· deals that enrich the few at the expense of the many;
· billion-dollar bailouts;
· trillions of newly printed dollars flowing from government to Wall Street at giveaway interest rates;
· brand-name economists hired to defend the indefensible with a smokescreen of economic theory.

When private interests need a political favor, they know whom to call. When politicians need money, they also know whom to call. The people involved try to keep most of it concealed behind closed doors.

This is the system that prevails in Russia after the fall of Communism. But increasingly it is America's system as well.

Many people regard Wall Street as the epicenter of American capitalism. In reality it is the epicenter of American crony capitalism. Where Wall Street stops and Washington begins is impossible to say. This situation was not caused, as many suppose, by the Crash of 2008. Rather the Crash was caused by the longstanding Wall Street–Washington partnership. But the problem extends far beyond Wall Street to every corner of America.

If we are going to do anything about our present economic problems, and also give the poor a chance at a better life, we will need to eliminate crony capitalism.

Although full of hair-raising stories, this book is also about solutions. It tells us in clear and simple terms what is wrong and what needs to be done about it.

Review:

The tentacles of this crony capitalist system--the merger of corporate and state power (which is how Mussolini defined fascism)--are everywhere.... It is disturbing enough when such massive corruption exists in the world of politics and finance. But when it comes to control over what food we eat and the medicine we give our children, the cronyism is downright terrifying.

Crony Capitalism is a companion volume to Hunter Lewis' other outstanding work, published at the same time, Free Prices Now! --Jeremy Hammond, Barrons, 11/2/13

". . . What we have today is not the free market but 'crony capitalism,' an altogether different matter. Government and business are in a predatory partnership that extracts wealth to its own benefit. The fact that many suffer under the present system should occasion no surprise. Predatory 'cronyism' has existed throughout history and has been the main block to economic progress. . . . Lewis explains and documents [this] to the hilt. . . . Those inclined to dismiss Lewis's claim as exaggerated must confront the solid body of evidence he amasses." --David Gordon (Mises.org 9/24/13)  

"Hunter Lewis, co-founder of the investment firm Cambridge Associates, begins Crony Capitalism in America: 2008-2012 with cautionary tales of how crony capitalism has decimated economic growth in such countries as Argentina, Zimbabwe, and Russia. He is concerned that the United States is following the same path, with dire consequences in the offing."
--Murad J. Antia, CFA (CFA Institute)

"I recommend Free Prices Now! and Crony Capitalism in America 2008 - 2012 or anything by Hunter Lewis. Everything I have read of his is awesome."
--Host Kevin Price, The Price of Business 9/10/13
