Description

The stories behind the inequality crisis

Forty years ago, the richest 1 percent controlled 25 percent of America’s wealth. Today it’s 40 percent, and the richest one-tenth of 1 percent have as much wealth as the bottom 90 percent. Launched in Chicago in 1976, the muckraking, progressive magazine In These Times has been tracking this disastrous history through groundbreaking and heart-wrenching reportage, as well as incisive analysis. This book tells the story of a shockingly successful corporate crackdown, from Reaganomics to the precarious sharing economy, as well as intermittent movements to stem the tide, from the Seattle global justice protests to the Fight for 15.

Featuring contributions from Barbara Ehrenreich, Tom Frank, Tom Geoghegan, Juan González, Chris Hayes, Naomi Klein, Salim Muwakkil, Ralph Nader, Frances Fox Piven, Bernie Sanders, Slavoj Žižek, and many others, The Age of Inequality will be the definitive account of one of the defining issues of our time.
