PDF The 99% Reader

Book description

The issue of inequality has irrefutably returned to the fore, riding on the anger against Wall Street following the 2008 financial crisis and the accumulation of economic and political power in the hands of the super-rich. The Occupy movement has made the plight of the 99 percent an indelible part of the public consciousness, while inequality was a decisive factor in the outcome of the 2012 presidential elections. Yet in this most unequal of developed nations, every aspect of inequality remains hotly contested, its causes, its solutions, and its ramifications poorly understood.

Compiled by the Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist David Cay Johnston, The 99% Reader gathers together the writings of leading scholars, activists, and journalists to provide an illuminating, multifaceted look at inequality in America. Combining surprising statistical evidence with penetrating new analysis, the contributors explore the devastating implications that income inequality has on areas as diverse as education, justice, healthcare, social mobility, and political representation. This is an essential resource for anyone who cares about the future of America and a compelling argument that inequality can only be ignored at the nation’s peril.
