Anyway, I want to sort a catalog my impressions from the book. It's true, what people have said, about it being very prescient in it's own way, such as the concept - if not the exact wording - of an industry being 'too big to fail', and the media framing corporations and company leaders are greedy, soulless, evil, etc.
Lines from Ch. 2 that made me LOL:
Orren Boyle had appeared from nowhere, five years ago, and had since made the cover of every national news magazine. He had started out with a hundred thousand dollars of his own and a two-hundred-million-dollar loan from the government. Now he headed an enormous concern which had swallowed many smaller companies. This proved, he liked to say, that individual ability still had a chance to succeed in the world.
"Jim, you will agree, I'm sure, that there's nothing more destructive than a monopoly."
"Yes," said Taggart, "on one hand. On the other, there's the blight of unbridled competition."
