On tonight’s show we’ll be addressing financial inequality here in the USA. We’ll discuss …
- How do we understand the widening wealth gap; what is fueling its runaway increase?
- Student debt and the cost of higher education as a barrier to building wealth.
- Also… medical costs, now a leading cause of personal bankruptcy and loss of savings.
- And finally, blessedly, a review of things being done to address financial inequality, especially in the Bay Area.
