Invisible Hands tells the story of how a small group of American businessmen succeeded in building a political movement. Long before the "culture wars" of the 1960s sparked the Republican backlash against cultural liberalism, these high-powered individuals actively resisted New Deal economics and sought to educate and organize their peers. Kim Phillips-Fein recounts the little-known efforts of men such as W. C. Mullendore, Leonard Read, and Jasper Crane, drawing on meticulous research and narrative gifts to craft a compelling history of the role of big and small business in American politics--and a blueprint for anyone who wants insight into the way that money has been used to create political change.

This is what the .01% have firms routinely trashing [the information and Real History in it, that is] as // conspiracy theory \\ - - when it falls under the factual category. A masterful historic work telling us what should have been explained eons ago, throughout all levels of our educational system!

This book provides a good back story to understanding how we got to this point in American politics. Very interesting and informative.
