Your Call: Bechtel and the Men Who Built the World

BookOTheMonthMar1606-720x540.jpg

On the  March 16th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with investigative journalist Sally Denton about her new book, THE PROFITEERS: Bechtel and the Men Who Built the World.

From 1999 to 2013, Bechtel, the world’s largest contractor, received 40 billion dollars in contracts from the U.S. Departments of Energy and Defense. Denton says despite its fiercely anti-regulatory, anti- government worldview, the Bechtel family owes its entire fortune to the US government. Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you. 

Guest:

Sally Denton,investigative reporter, and author of  The Profiteers: Bechtel and the Men Who Built the World
