Short Description: 
David Cay Johnston on "Divided: The Perils of Our Growing Inequality"

Ani and Lyn speak with investigative journalist David Cay Johnston about his latest book Divided: The Perils of Our Growing Inequality. David Cay Johnston says most Americans, in inflation-adjusted terms, are now back to the average income of 1966. Shockingly, from 2009 to 2011, the top 1 percent got 121 percent of the income gains while the bottom 99 percent saw their income fall. Yet in this most unequal of developed nations, every aspect of inequality remains hotly contested and poorly understood.
