Just another CRAFT site

Shakedown

by Kate Galliers

CRAFT is proud to showcase the work we recently produced for The Manhattan Institute for Public Policy Research. In conjunction with the release of Steven Malanga’s newest book Shakedown, we set out to create a mini-documentary, telling the story of this timely subject.

Shakedown dissects the unchecked growth of the public sector unions and non-profit groups at a time when our country is frustrated by the lack of fiscal responsibility at the federal level and fearful of what mounting debt and deficits will mean for our future. Debt at the state and municipal levels, budget busting pension obligations and unwieldy union power are at the heart of this hydra-headed issue.

This video provides a glimpse into the story Malanga explains so well in Shakedown.
