America is in the grip of societal economic panic. Lawmakers cry "We're Broke!" as they slash budgets, lay of school teachers, police and fire fighters, leaving many Americans struggling to survive. And while the deficit climbs and the cuts go deeper, these corporations -- with intimate ties to our political leaders -- are concealing colossal profits overseas to avoid paying U.S. income tax. We're Not Broke documents how U.S. corporations have been able to hide over a trillion dollars from Uncle Sam, and how a growing number of Americans are taking their frustration to the streets, demanding that U.S. corporations pay their fair share!
. "Kicking assets and taking names, 'We're Not Broke' gets in the face of deficit hawks and budget cutters with a well-researched, brightly presented and provocative argument that the U.S. isn't overtaxed and profligate, but rather a paradise for corporate tax cheats." -- John Anderson, Variety.
