How Big Companies Rob You Blind

David Cay Johnston
David Cay Johnston talks about his book "The Fine Print: How Big Companies Use 'Plain English' to Rob You Blind" with Jayne O'Donnell, USA Today Money Reporter.

“No other modern country gives corporations the unfettered power found in America to gouge cus­tomers, shortchange workers, and erect barriers to fair play. A big reason is that so little of the news . . . addresses the private, government-approved mechanisms by which price gouging is employed to redistribute income upward.”

David Cay Johnston is an American investigative journalist, author and a specialist in economics and tax issues. Mr. Johnston won the Pulitzer Prize in 2001 for beat reporting.
