Wealth gap & the justice system

the divideBest-selling author Matt Taibbi will give a presentation based on his book The Divide: American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap (Spiegel & Grau, 2014) on Oct. 1 at 7 p.m. in Gasson Hall, room 100. In his book, Taibbi shines a spotlight on two trends in America: the growing wealth inequality and mass incarceration. He writes about a justice system he feels devours the lives of the poor, turns a blind eye to the destructive crimes of the wealthy, and implicates us all. Taibbi is also the author of Griftopia and Great Derangement: A Terrifying True Story of War, Politics and Religion, among other titles.
