That makes no sense, you blame politics instead of money, what about deception of the private sector to the consumer?
What is the fault for deception and dishonesty in pretty much any transaction?
Greed, the desire to take monetary advantage of one party over the other.
So what is to blame when a developer takes a parcel and knows it has toxic deposits that are harmful, but if the developer discloses the information then they have to pay to clean it up or mark it down to fair value? Is that monetary cost the reason the developer does not disclose it? Of course.
Pretty much every decision of dishonesty where money is involved is due to money, power equates to more money and more power.
He was selling a book that is true, and that is a good reason to discount his presentation, but the concept of removing money from politics how can that be a bad idea?

The politics of money exists across all of society, not just politics alone.
