Broken Capitalism by Ferris Eanfar (Book Cover)

Ferris' new book — Broken Capitalism: This Is How We Fix It — is now available!

From the back cover: "Humanity Is In Trouble. When the 10 largest corporations on Earth have more combined economic power than 92% of all countries on Earth combined, the 50 largest financial corporations control wealth equal to 90% of Earth's GDP, the richest 1% of humans have more wealth than 99% of the world combined, and the eight richest humans have more wealth than the bottom 50% of Earth's entire population combined . . . it's safe to say humanity is in trouble. . . ."

See the detailed description, customer reviews, and worldwide availability or get it from Amazon. All proceeds go to the nonprofit, nonpartisan AngelPay Foundation.
