The Great Divergence
July 16, 2012
Is the United States a country run by the rich, for the rich? If so, will there be an adjustment of extreme inequality in our lifetime? TIMOTHY NOAH, senior editor at The New Republic, looks at our steadily growing nation of haves and have-nots and questions this changing character of America. His new book, “The Great Divergence,” looks at the history of the causes and consequences of our evolving economy.
