The Fifth Risk

If you require additional evidence that the presidency of Donald J. Trump poses an existential danger to the United States of America, read The Fifth Risk, the latest work of journalism from popular author Michael Lewis. This short (fewer than 225 pages), easy-to-follow book profiles several dedicated federal employees in various Departments, including Energy, Agriculture and Commerce, illustrating the vital work done by public servants usually dismissed as paper-pushing bureaucrats.That the Trump administration wishes to  ignore or eliminate whole swaths of government without understanding the vital functions they perform  — tornado warnings; small business loans; meat inspections — is  the titular “risk” we face from a President who champions ignorance and enriches his friends.
