MORE ABOUT DYLAN RATIGAN:
Dylan Ratigan is the host of MSNBC’s The Dylan Ratigan Show
, one of the highest-rated daytime shows on the network. This make-versus-take, analysis-driven daily broadcast fearlessly takes on the world of politics, money, and the unholy alliance between big business and government.
The former global managing editor for corporate finance at Bloomberg News, Ratigan has developed and launched more than half a dozen broadcast and new media properties. They include CNBC’s Fast Money
and Closing Bell
, as well as DylanRatigan.com
Ratigan left as host of Fast Money in 2009, provoked by outrage over the government’s handling of the 2008 financial crisis
. Since then, he has dedicated his work to launching platforms that engage and debate the U.S. government on policy, while opening the door for millions to learn more about money’s often poisonous role in our democracy. His first book, the New York Times bestseller, Greedy Bastards
, details this broken system
. More importantly, it illustrates how fixing these problems will release a renaissance of growth and innovation.
Since late September 2011, more than 300,000 people
have pledged support, millions of dollars have been raised, and an organization with a staff of a dozen people has been formed under Ratigan’s leadership to pursue the singular objective to pass a 28th Constitutional amendment to separate business and state.
