On this episode of Carson's Corner, we welcome author Les Leopold to the show. Les will discuss his latest book, Runaway Inequality: An Activist's Guide to Economic Justice, which is available at https://www.runawayinequality.org/product/runawayinequality, and will be available at your local book store beginning October 28th.
This book is divided into 4 important parts. (https://www.runawayinequality.org/product/runawayinequality)
Part I: What is the fundamental cause of runaway economic inequality? What has made our economy less fair and left most of us less secure?
• Part II: How does the United States really compare with other major developed countries? How do we stack up on quality of life, health and well-being?
• Part III: What does economic inequality have to do with so many of the critical issues we face, including taxes, debt, education, criminal justice, racism, climate change, foreign trade and war?
• Part IV: What concrete steps can we take to begin building a fair and just society?
In the second hour, Bob and Chris will discuss the rest of the news that matters to the working class here an beyond.
