Guest: Matt Taibbi

Our guest, investigative reporter MATT TAIBBI examines two growing trends in the United States – expanding wealth inequality and mass incarceration. He describes how money affects Americans’ civil rights and how the justice system has disproportional rules, protecting the affluent and punishing immigrants and the poor in his new book. The author of several books including “The Great Derangement” and “Griftopia,” and former Rolling Stone contributor, Matt Taibbi’s sixth book is “The Divide: The American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap.”
