n a democracy, the civics textbooks tell us, people come together to discuss, debate, and decide solutions to the common problems they face. But this democratic deliberation only works effectively when most people have the same problems in common. In deeply unequal societies, they don't.
--Sam Pizzigatti, "Too Much"
"A potent chronicle of America's 'extreme inequality, the worst by far of any nation with a modern economy.'"
