Book Description

24 Sep 2012
The stench of greed inengulfing all our once-admired institutions. Everything that once made Britain admired in the world - our sense of fair play, our tolerance, our democracy - has been trampled in the mud by our self-serving, ruling elites. But while our masters loot ever more of our money for themselves, they preach to us about the need for asuterity, cutbacks and sacrifices GREED UNLIMITED exposes how our voracious elites have made fools of us all and shows how we can fight back against the rapacity of those who have power over us.

More About the Author

David Craig spent most of his career working for some of the world's best and worst management consultancies. After writing two whistleblowing books, "Rip-Off" and "Plundering the Public Sector", about how consultants take millions from businesses and government departments while delivering little of value, he was blacklisted and so left the profession.

Since then, he has written several books about government corruption, incompetence and waste, including "Squandered: How Gordon Brown is wasting over one trillion pounds of our money" and "Fleeced: How we've been betrayed by politicians, bureaucrats and bankers", both of which won the Hammond Whiteley journalism award. He is also the author of "The Great European Rip-Off" and "Pillaged! How they're looting £413 million a day from your savings and pensions".

5.0 out of 5 stars Well researched 26 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I regularly read the blog on "Snouts in the trough" and so I am well aware of the approach taken by the author and this book is written in a similar though slightly more constrained style. It makes a very informative read and every chapter adds more facts which cause me to ask how our government can get away with it. I would like to say it is an enjoyable book and certainly the style is excellent and well researched - it is just that so frustrating to find out what is being done by the Coalition. Having said that I am thoroughly enjoying it and I recommend this to anyone who wants to be able to argue with researched facts rather than opinions. An excellent book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A devastating critique of modern Britain's elites 31 July 2013
By LXIX TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
"Greed Unlimited" is an incisive deconstruction of how a minority within society (bankers, politicians, 'executhieves', senior bureaucrats etc) are doing very well while apathy and austerity rules across the nation. A Marxist would perhaps put this down to 'false consciousness' on behalf of the masses (who are usually more interested in football, soap operas and reality TV). While those on the right would point out the distortions of crony capitalism and imperfect market governance.

As Britain careers towards possible national bankruptcy around 2017/2018, this investigative offering explains how a narrow strata of ruling elites are conveniently rewarding themselves with largesse. In doing so, David Craig shines a forensic light on public sector officials and private sector boardrooms.

If you're beginning to get the feeling that we're perhaps living in a kleptocracy, then this book will confirm your worst fears. Personally, when growing up, I used to naively believe that politicians were in it to improve society. That view has long gone.

Unfortunately, this is a huge topic and I've no doubt that the author could probably produce several tomes of a similar ilk. In terms of content here, I think the book would have benefitted with more analysis of the BBC for example.

David Craig also blogs daily at '[...] and it's well worth a click. If you've not given up yet on the 3 mainstream UK political parties and aren't yet inclined towards alternatives, then you might very well change your mind after reading this useful and damning book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing but worth reading anyway 24 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is basically an updated version of all the other books David Craig has written where he rants against all the smug arrogance, corruption, incompetence and hypocrisy of the people who run modern Britain.

Even for those who have read his previous books, there are good things about this book. There are updated statistics and examples demonstrating where the coalition is failing to live up to its promises to reign in the excesses of Labour waste.

Much of the book summarises his other books but often over simplifies. The tone is sensationalist, sarcastic and often fails in attempting to be witty, all contribute unnecessary verbosity. Most annoying is its vagueness about details. An example is on page 275 where half the page describes "one of the most histrionically vociferous members of the Public Accounts Committee" and this individual's arrogance and incompetence... but this individual is never identified. Why not? If Mr. Craig is factually correct and avoids exaggeration then he has no reason to fear libel. Throughout the book, these kind of unnecessary omissions are frustrating and sometimes, detract from its credibility. In other places, identities of people can be inferred by checking the (sparse) references but omissions remain annoying.

So overall, the book is disappointing. Far from his strongest book but nevertheless, interesting in some parts for the updated material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every voter should read this book 25 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
David Craig quotes Winston Churchill in his blog at http://www.snouts-in-the-trough.com/ "The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter". EVERY VOTER SHOULD READ THIS BOOK! Then maybe we will vote the right people into Government rather than get the many that are in it just for what they personally get out of it by ripping everybody else off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Staggering Story 30 Jun 2013
By CD
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is an absorbing read that highlights the immense failings of our 'leaders' over the past 3 governments.

It will leave you feeling outraged and helpless that incompetence, greed, nepotism and selfishness has reduced UK to a shadow of what it should be on the World stage.

Our futures have been blighted by the Unlimited Greed of those whom we thought we could trust as honourable, upstanding men.

Highly recommended by for any Briton who cares about UK and the future of their families well-being. Every voter needs to read this book this year.

5.0 out of 5 stars David Craig at the heart of the matter 21 Jun 2013

It's going to take more than 'soundbites' if Cameron has any chance whatsoever of winning the next election. David Craig's book pulls no punches. Solid evidence from reputable sources.
