Getting beyond campaign rhetoric about the economy: An Interview with Chuck Collins of the Institute for Policy
Host Dave Mazza speaks with Chuck Collins who directs the program on Inequality and the Common Good at the Washington DC-based Institute for Policy Studies and coordinates the Working Group on Extreme Inequality. Founder of United for a Fair Economy, Collins thinks that no one is talking about the dangerous disparity of wealth that is pushing us towards economic ruin nor about ways to redistribute the wealth to create a healthier and more just society. Dave will talking with Collins about the ideas he recently outlined in The Nation as well as his new book, The Rich and the Rest of Us (Collins is coming to Portland on July 16th as part of his book tour).
