    The Predator State: A Summary. James K. Galbraith’s The Predator State is undoubtedly one of the most important books on the economics of our era. Galbraith sets himself the task, not only of exposing the discredited economic orthodoxies of our generation, but also documenting the economy as it really exists, and setting an agenda for the future. With The Predator State James K. Galbraith brings the insightful analysis of The New Industrial State and The Affluent Society to bear on the shambles of the 21st century US economy. In part one Galbraith demolishes the standard arguments about deficits, free trade, shopping, interest rates, tax cuts, and rest of the book builds.

      "I'll Be Gone In The Dark'' — a six-part documentary series about the Golden State Killer — based on the late Michelle McNamara's book about the violent predator .   “When a population becomes distracted by trivia, when cultural life is redefined as a perpetual round of entertainments, when serious public conversation becomes a form of baby-talk, when, in short, a people become an audience and their public business a vaudeville act, then a nation finds itself at risk; a culture-death is a clear possibility.”.

      In this riveting book, Galbraith first dissects the stale remains of Reaganism and shows why George W. Bush had no choice but to dump them. He then explores the true nature of the Bush regime: a “corporate republic” doing the bidding of the oil, military, pharmaceutical, and media industries; a predator state intent not on reducing.   Galbraith is the author of six books, the most recent, THE PREDATOR STATE: HOW CONSERVATIVES ABANDONED THE FREE MARKET AND WHY LIBERALS SHOULD TOO. >More about James K. Galbraith.
