Sasha Abramsky Interview — Podcast October 13, 2014

Social Policy and the Shrinking Middle Class: Increasing Inequality Is NOT an Accident. Democratic Perspective welcomes author and journalist Sasha Abramsky back to talk about the consequences of the social policy failures outlined in his recent book  The American Way of Poverty: How the Other Half Still Lives. How deliberate policy decisions by the leaders of out government and corporate institutions devastated a once prosperous middle class, and turned a constitutional democracy into a brutal and largely unprincipled plutocracy reminiscent of the Gilded Age of the 1880s and 90s.
