Democracy in Chains by Nancy MacLean (Introduction to Chapter 7)
We will discuss the first half of this book and discuss the second half in March.
“Behind today’s headlines of billionaires taking over our government is a secretive political establishment with long, deep, and troubling roots.

Democracy in Chains names its true architect—the Nobel Prize-winning political economist James McGill Buchanan—and dissects the operation he and his colleagues designed over six decades to alter every branch of government to disempower the majority.”
