Dean Baker, founder of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, has been explaining how the economy has been rigged for some timee, eloquently so. And he has a new book, Rigged: How Globalization and the Rules of the Modern Economy Were Structured to Make the Rich Richer, that puts it all in one place.

Here Baker spends time discussing trade-agreement (or government granted) patent monopolies, one direct result of is which Americans pay usurious/ridiculous prices for life-saving drugs. Over the past year, it’s a topic he’s addressed again and again, and what to do about it.

I’ve cited him here — frequently. And I’ll be reading the book.
