    It’s no secret that hundreds of companies have been slashing pensions and health coverage earned by millions of retirees. Employers blame an aging workforce, stock market losses, and spiraling costs - a perfect storm of external forces that has forced them to take drastic measures. But this so-called retirement crisis is no accident. Award-winning investigative reporter Ellen E. Schultz reveals how large companies and the retirement industry - benefits consultants, insurance companies, and banks - have all played a huge, hidden role in the death spiral of American pensions and benefits.

    What did you love best about Retirement Heist?

    This book is a must. Should be a required reading for anyone who wants to work. The fact that companies are allowed to touch the funds in a retirement fund is wrong!


    What other book might you compare Retirement Heist to and why?

    still looking.


    Which character – as performed by Nicole Vilencia – was your favorite?

    The naive folks in Congress.


    If you could give Retirement Heist a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Money burns a hole…Don’t trust anyone.


    Any additional comments?

    great work a must listen...Purchased the hard copy..

    Poverty goes up. Crime goes down. The prison population doubles. Fraud by the rich wipes out 40 percent of the world’s wealth. The rich get massively richer. No one goes to jail. In search of a solution, journalist Matt Taibbi discovered the Divide, the seam in American life where our two most troubling trends - growing wealth inequality and mass incarceration - come together, driven by a dramatic shift in American citizenship: Our basic rights are now determined by our wealth or poverty.

    Dave Robicheaux returns in another Bayou adventure, this one more gruesome and gut-wrenching than any that have come before. Hurricane Katrina has ravaged New Orleans, leaving the streets and buildings flooded and the city awash with opportunists, looters, and vicious criminals. There is no order, no law. Police are shooting randomly at innocent people, prison guards have abandoned their posts, and bodies float through the streets and hang from trees.

    The FBI has never known quite what to do with Agent Bernadette Saint Clare. Shortly after she's placed at a desk in the basement of the off-site St. Paul office, bodies begin to appear along the sandy banks of the Mississippi. Soon she's called on to do what she does best: use personal effects found at a crime scene to see through a killer's eyes.
