Fascinating idea, well written, VERY plausible. Given the state of our economy, our lame government representatives, and current attitudes, the book makes one wonder why this hasn't happened in real life. It reads like an expose on 60 Minutes, or other news show. It is often difficult to remember that this is a fiction, not a new story.
This is one of the best stories I've read in a decade! I had hoped to contact the author and praise him, but he is elusive.
