Former U.S. President George W. Bush has left the United States a country, where a few rich have accumulated massive wealth to the detriment of the nation, says Saul Landau, the senior fellow and vice chair of the U.S. based Institute for Policy Studies.

 

“I think you could argue that [U.S. President Barack] Obama inherited a legacy from George Bush, and part of that he's stuck with,” Landau told Press TV's U.S. Desk in a Sunday interview.

 

“What George Bush really did was make a much better life for people who had lots and lots of money and a worse life for people who had little money, that is the working people and the middle class of the United Sates,” he went on to say.

 

“At the same time, Bush increased the cost of government by starting two wars, both of which were unnecessary,” Landau pointed out.
