The article focuses on the book "How to Get Rich in Washington," by Blair Bolles. The book is an eye opener on the spread of corruption in the federal government of the United States during the last decade, through the informative account of Bolles. He names a whole lot of offices such as the Surplus Property and the War Assets Administration, the Maritime Commission, the Internal Revenue Bureau, the Commerce Department, and so on, who are involved in the profligate dispensation of tax amortization certificates.
