News & Opinion: Chapter One of The Battle For The Soul of Capitalism

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 8:31 PM – Filed under: Current Events & Public Affairs

I just got done posting the first chapter to The Battle For The Soul of Capitalism by John Bogle. Tom Ehrenfeld told me the book was good and that I should check it out. After reading through the first chapter, I am hooked. Bogle writes with crystal clarity. You read magazine articles talking about excessive compensation for executives, but Bogle pulls together some amazing numbers to make the case like I have not seen.

You can find the entire excerpt here. Check it out.
