cover_pitythebillionaire.jpg

On the next Your Call, following the State of the Union address, we’ll have a conversation with Thomas Frank, author of “Pity the Billionaire: The Hard-Times Swindle and the Unlikely Comeback of the Right. Why has the worst economy since the 1930s brought about the revival of conservatism and pushed the Democrats to the right?  Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org.  How should progressives respond to right-wing populism?  It’s Your Call with Holly Kernan, and you.

Guest

Thomas Frank, author of “Pity the Billionaire: The Hard-Times Swindle and the Unlikely Comeback of the Right”
