The American Dream: Wake Up Call?

Season 3 Episode 306 | 56m 46s

During the pandemic, the wealthy became richer while the poor got poorer. Already at historic heights before the pandemic, wealth inequality is worse than during the Gilded Age, dividing the country into haves and have-nots. This episode examines the consequences of the stark cleavage, the values that drive economic policy and the connections between our political and economic crises.
