POLITICO Magazine Explores Money, Politics, and Power in 2014

image001It’s Thursday, and therefore, we’re looking ahead to the weekend and figuring out what magazine we look forward to reading come Saturday afternoon.

This week, it’s POLITICO Magazine, which, among other things, examines Washington through a lens of money, politics, and power.

The cover promotes three articles: The Pitchforks are Coming… For Us Plutocrats, by Nick Hanauer; Karl Rove and the Modern Money Machine, by Kenneth P. Vogel; and The Myth of America’s Golden Age, by Joseph E. Stiglitz.

Also included – Checks and Imbalances – a special report that asks: ”Is our society rigged? That’s what a growing number of Americans believe, and reams of statistics indicate: Economic and political power is now concentrated in fewer hands than ever before, while the middle class wastes away. The 1 percent has never had it so good, but can it last?”

Check it out, online now, and in print tomorrow.

POLITICO’s Kenneth Vogel Goes All This Town on American Politics in Big Money

Screen Shot 2014-06-03 at 11.52.54In book stores like Kindle and Nook today, find POLITICO Chief Investigative Reporter Kenneth P. Vogel‘s latest BIG MONEY: 2.5 Billion Dollars, One Suspicious Vehicle, and a Pimp—on the Trail of the Ultra-Rich Hijacking American Politics, which explores the finances behind the American political system.

Similar to Mark Leibovich‘s This Town, which exposed DC as the “nexus of big politics, big money, big media, and big vanity,” Vogel explains how just a handful of the rich dominate the political landscape.

On Friday, the POLITICO magazine cover story offered an excerpt from the book.

While we’ve yet to receive our copy (it is en route), the book’s publisher – PublicAffairs – shared with us some of Big Money’s major themes. More on them after the jump. Read more
