Titel: Economic Apartheid In America
Sub titel: A Primer on Economic Inequality and Insecurity
This updated edition of the widely touted Economic Apartheid in America looks at the causes and manifestations of wealth disparities in the United States, including tax policy in light of the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts and recent corporate scandals. Published with two leading organisations dedicated to addressing economic inequality, the book looks at recent changes in income and wealth distribution and examines the economic policies and shifts in power that have fuelled the growing divide. Economic Apartheid in America provides much-needed groundwork for more democratic discussion and participation in economic life. With a wealth of eye-opening data focusing on the decline or organised labour and civic institutions, the battle over global trade, and the growing inequality of income and wages, it argues that most Americans are shut out of the discussion of the rules governing their economic lives. Accessible and engaging and illustrated throughout with charts, graphs and political cartoons, the book lays out a comprehensive plan for action.
