520    The Big Con is a brilliantly revealing look at how the 
       radical ideas of a small group of economic hucksters have 
       taken over the American political system and perverted our
       nation's policies.American politics has been hijacked. Not
       by "neocons" or "theocons," but by a fringe group of 
       economic extremists obsessed with radical ideas that favor
       no one but themselves and their business interests. With 
       dark and engaging wit, Jonathan Chait shows how over the 
       past three decades these canny zealots have gamed the 
       political system and the media so that once unthinkable 
       policies-without a shred of academic, expert, or even 
       popular support-now drive the American agenda, regardless 
       of which party is in power.Why have these ideas succeeded 
       in Washington? How did a subset of fringe radicals take 
       control of American policy and sell short the country's 
       future? And how do they continue to do so despite repeated
       electoral setbacks? Chait tells the outrageous and eye-
       opening story, expertly explaining just how politics and 
       economics work in Washington. Through vivid portraits of 
       self-interested politicians and pseudoeconomists, with wry
       analysis of their bogus theories, Chait gives us the tools
       to understand what's really behind economic policy debates
       in Washington: a riveting drama of greed and deceit.
