"The rise of crony capitalism"

That's the title of a post at AgainstCronyCapitalism.org that features Peter Schweizer, a conservative political commentator, author, and research fellow at Stanford University's Hoover InstitutionThe ACC post includes a video of a presentation Schweizer gave recently on crony capitalism.  I watched it this past week and found it to be a good intro-level overview of the phenomena of cronyism and definitely recommend checking it out.  Schweizer has a nice, down-to-earth, accessible demeanor which helps keep viewer attention. Also, here's another ACC post that has a 7-minute video of Schweizer discussing how (and why) Big Business likes it when Big Government grows.
