Vultures' Picnic: In Pursuit of Petroleum Pigs, Power Pirates, and High-Finance Carnivores
By: Greg Palast
Publisher: DUTTON (Published by Penguin Group), 7/1/2011
That intrepid investigative reporter Greg Palast has given us one of the best books I’ve read in a very long time. The book centers on two types of “vultures” - the financial tycoons and the oil companies. His many years of investigating various incidents involving these two groups are pulled together into this one great book. If you still haven’t wrapped your head around how the financial people screwed - and are still screwing - the entire world, then this is for you. Despite the complexity of the issues, Palast’s explanations make it all quite understandable. And his inimitable writing style makes the book very entertaining. You’ll enjoy reading this and learn a lot, too.
