About the Book

Examines the attempts made in the 1990s to infuse free-market ideology with claims of democracy, resulting in something called market populism. Driven by the economy's irrational exuberance, market populism served as cover for various nefarious activities, usually directed toward gathering profits without boundaries, and as a sessile home for the various weird ideas floating around the lower depths of American intellectual currents.

First Sentence

It was the age of the focus group, of the vox populi transformed into flesh, descended to earth and holding forth majestically in poll results, in town hall meetings, in brand loyalty demographics, in e-mail buletin boards, in website hits, in browser traffic.
