We the (poor) people…

I really like your topic on wealth inequality in the US. I bought Piketty’s book when he published it last year, and I think his findings on the progression of income inequality in the US and other major countries is pretty scary.

I started becoming interested in this topic when I saw this video, based on research by a Harvard economics professor:

How can we preserve our country’s democratic values when the top 1% of our country owns 40% of our country’s wealth, and super-PACs allow people to anonymously donate as much money as they want?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
