Duration: 9 hours 19 minutes
The Big Con is a brilliantly revealing look at how the radical ideas of a small group of economic hucksters have taken over the American political system and perverted our nation's policies. Through vivid portraits of self-interested politicians and pseudoeconomists, with wry analysis of their bogus theories, Jonathan Chait gives us the tools to understand what's really behind economic policy debates in Washington: a riveting drama of greed and deceit.
