Chatting Up A Storm - Claudia Cragg

Feb 12, 2018

Claudia Cragg (@KGNUClaudia for @KGNU speaks here with George R. Tyler, on his latest book, Billionaire Democracy, from @BenBellaBooks

In this Tyler clearly lays out the sinister architecture of what many recognize to be 'The Swamp' and the fundamental problems plaguing US democracy. But Tyler also lays out a realistic pathway to improve middle-class economics. It's time, he says, for the people of the United States to demand a government that properly serves the nation - the way any real democracy should. 

Economist George R. Tyler was appointed U.S. deputy assistant treasury secretary by President Bill Clinton in 1993. He subsequently served at the World Bank, as CEO of his own real estate investment firm and was a founder of a multi-million dollar Swiss medical R&D nonprofit.

Mr. Tyler is the author of “What Went Wrong,” a book that seeks to determine why families in other rich democracies have continued living the American Dream that is now lost to many U.S. families. His latest book is “Billionaire Democracy: The Hijacking of the American Political System.”

 Mr. Tyler attended the University of Colorado and the Ph.D program in economics at the University of Virginia.
