If you feel that income inequality today is insane, well, you’re right. Disparity in wages and opportunity between the rich and the rest of us has been growing more rapidly in the U.S. than in decades. This trend is fueling much of the unrest tearing apart civil life today. Three compelling writers unpack income inequality today. Steven Clifford takes us inside the machinations of corporate boardrooms and CEO suites and details the harm to the economy. Jeff Clements outlines why corporations are not people but nevertheless have more rights than you do, and what you can do about it. One of the most eloquent voices today combatting systemic inequality, Robert Reich has penned many books including the mega-bestseller “Saving Capitalism: For the Many, Not the Few,” recent “Economics in Wonderland: Robert Reich’s Cartoon Guide to a Political World Gone Mad and Mean,” and the new “The Common Good.”
