Your Call: What can be done to fix inequality?




On the September 17th, 2014 edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with investigative journalist and Pulitzer Prize winner David Cay Johnston. From 2009 to 2011, the top 1 percent got 121 percent of income gains while everyone else saw their income fall. Inequality affects every aspect of our lives, from healthcare to social mobility, family structure, justice, and education. How does inequality hurt our economy as a whole? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.


David Cay Johnston, Pulitzer prize winning journalist, author, and editor of “Divided: The Perils of our Growing Inequality”
