Author Thom Hartman spoke with KBOO's Althea Billings about his new book The Hidden History of Monopolies: How Big Business Destroyed the American Dream which launches virtually on August 25th with Powells.

The book covers how American monopolies dominate, control, and consume most of the energy of the U.S. economic system; they function the same as cancer does in a body, and, like cancer, they weaken systems while threatening to crash the entire body economy. American monopolies have also seized massive political power and use it to maintain their obscene profits and CEO salaries while crushing small competitors.

But Thom Hartmann, America's #1 progressive radio host, shows we've broken the control of behemoths like these before, and we can do it again.
