Praise for Fifteen Steps to Corporate Feudalism

 “Can’t find a decent job? Can’t afford to see a doctor when you’re sick? In danger of losing your home? Can’t save for retirement? Have no idea how to pay for your children’s college? The right wing says that it’s all your fault, but it’s not. And this book explains why not. Wake up, America!”

 “Marker expertly explains how the Wall Street inequality machine and our corporate overlords rigged the rules of the economy, distracted the public from the real issues of our time, and fueled the collapse of our middle class. This accessible book helps us reclaim our democracy from its capture and looting by global corporations.”

America’s middle class is in dramatic decline. What caused its downfall? Was it the media? Tax cuts? The destruction of public education? Corporate greed? Or perhaps the ongoing creation of unnecessary wars? In Fifteen Steps to Corporate Feudalism Dennis Marker provides a step-by-step account of how and why the US middle class has been working harder than ever and is still losing ground. This examination of fifteen specific policies promoted by conservatives and the superrich—and implemented through the vice grip of fear, anger, and greed—reveals that the decline of the middle class is no accident. The Occupy movement has exposed some outgrowths of the extreme wealth inequality and crumbling middle class. This book explains what set it all off and keeps it going. Included is a clear roadmap to begin reversing the damage that’s been done.
