"Wonderfully incendiary and right-headed...Huffington is mad as hell, and rightly so." -Esquire The scathing and insightful New York Times bestseller, now updated to include the current economic crisis Pigs at the Trough is Arianna Huffington's eerily prescient exposE of the financial meltdown-and the flagrant greed that triggered it. Once again, Huffington takes on the nexus of corporate highfliers, lobbyists, and Washington insiders who have created and zealously protected a culture of corruption in America. Hearkening back to the days of Enron and WorldCom, she draws a line connecting those accounting frauds to the much larger and more sophisticated corruption that drove the latest financial crisis. The list of new culprits is long, and in this updated version of Pigs at the Trough, Huffington calls them out-including AIG, Citigroup, and Merrill Lynch-and asks the probing questions of how things went so wrong and how we can rebuild our free market capitalist system on a sounder moral foundation. Wickedly amusing yet powerfully indicting, Pigs at the Trough will once again stir up heated discussion among Americans outraged by the bailout of corporate swine. "With a passion for the truth and an eye for detail, Arianna Huffington reports on the hijacking of democracy. Read it and weep-then head for the barricades."-Bill Moyers "Huffington indicts with precision, verve, and sparkling wit." -Barbara Ehrenreich "Arianna Huffington makes an appealing and compelling argument for the repeal of human nature-that part of it that indulges savage, unconscionable, and despicable greed." -Walter Cronkite
