Instaread Summary of Makers and Takers The Rise of Finance and the Fall of American Business by Rana Foroohar
Five out of five stars
After I read a review in a news magazine, I was moved to the read the book. Therefore, the summary was read after the book. From this perspective I can say with no qualifications that the summary is an extremely accurate explanation of the book.
Foroohar uses understandable language to describe the systemic problems of modern capitalism, the power of the financial sector. With a focus more on the making of money by manipulation rather than growth investment, the financial sector is creating artificial spikes in the prices of essential commodities.
This is a book that all advocates for social change need to read, this summary will prove it to you. It will also give you a new perspective on the definition of the word “taker” as it is used in the American political arena.
This book was made available for free for review purposes.
