Description
From the New York Times bestselling author of Clinton Cash comes an explosive new political expose! In many parts of the world, the children of powerful political figures go into business and profit handsomely, not necessarily because they are good at it, but because people want to curry favor with their influential parents. This is a relatively new phenomenon in the U.S.; but for relatives of some prominent political families, we may already be talking about hundreds of millions of dollars. "Secret Empires" identifies public servants who cannot be trusted and provides a path toward a more accountable government.
