    Excerpt from Billions, Blunders, and Baloney: The Fantastic Story of How Uncle Sam Is Squandering Your Money Overseas Do you know that since 1948 we have spent over forty billion dollars to help "save" other countries? Do you know that since 1948 we have spent over half a billion dollars for propaganda alone in Europe, Asia, and Latin America? Here is the fantastic story of our give-away and propaganda program all over the world. It is told by a man who has traveled 75,000 miles to find out why the United States is becoming the world's most unpopular country while spending billions to make friends. Eugene W. Castle interviewed hundreds of men and women in many countries. He got the lowdown on how mammoth appropriations are obtained by such Washington agencies as FOA and USIA. And he has concluded that "the failures, blunders, wrong guesses, bad timing, and gross extravagances of well-meaning but pathetically unqualified policy makers" are to blame for the "Yankee Go Home" signs that are painted on walls and fences all over the world. "It is an appalling story," says the author, "most of which, I am sure, is unknown to the American people. I felt that the story should be told, so they might know what they are buying with their billions." And what a story it is! Castle minces no words in the telling.
