A shocking expose of the inside game in Washington, explaining how so many politicians leave Washington richer than they were when they first arrived. Worst of all, it’s all legal: members of congress are free to trade stocks based on confidential information, hedge-fund managers are free to extract tips from politicians, and then reward them with access to IPOs, and the Obama administration has been able to reward dozens of campaign contributors with shockingly large grants and guaranteed loans.
