The Rich are Getting Richer
We’re discussing inequality, or how the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. Our friend Igor Volsky, ThinkProgress’s Director of Video, joins us to discuss what happened when he hit the streets of DC to find out what Americans know about inequality in America. (Spoiler alert: the truth shocked them.) Tracey visits her hometown of Oakland, CA to explore the rise of gentrification in the Bay Area with the help of the organization Urban Habitat; Rebecca talks with Sarah Alvarez of Michigan Radio about why she launched Infowire, an innovative news source directed at low-income news consumers; and Alan Pyke returns for another rendition of the weekly(ish) worst.
