It’s Not Raining, We’re Getting Peed On
SECOND EDITION (RELEASED MARCH 2013)
What’s this all about?
We’re being scammed and robbed—again. We’re being frightened, bullied and brainwashed into thinking that our entire future is at stake because of the “government’s deficit crisis” and the “government’s debt crisis”. We are all being told: America, it’s time to tighten the belt.
It isn’t true. There is no crisis. It’s manufactured.
In this book, Jonathan Tasini explodes the myth of the government’s deficit and debt “crisis”. He digs into the false statements about the “crisis”, who is behind the myth of the “crisis” and he shows that we have plenty of money.
Using his trademark easy-to-understand writing style, Tasini leads the reader through a clear, penetrating look at our economic crisis. He shows that there is a crisis–but it has nothing to do with the government’s “debt” or “deficit”.
He argues with facts and figures–but not in a Washington wonky style–that the real crisis is the on-going robbery of the American people by the leaders who continue to sell us on the virtues of the so-called “free market”.

“Any time you begin to take the deficit hawks’ whining seriously, pick up Tasini’s book and read a few pages. It helps to put everything in context.” —Dean Baker, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research and author of “Plunder and Blunder: The Rise and Fall of the Bubble Economy”
