David Cay Johnston
Community

With our wide disparities in income and educational opportunities, of criminal justice outcomes, and with overt and subtle political repression, Pulitzer Prize-winner David Cay Johnston has called the US “the most unequal of developed nations.” Johnston, the bestselling author of Free Lunch, Perfectly Legal, and The Fine Print, has now edited the collection Divided: The Perils of Our Growing Inequality, which brings together economists, politicians, journalists, and scholars to investigate this culture of inequality, and–most important–what it holds for our country’s future.

Presented by: Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility.
Tickets: $5; email daniel@wpsr.org or call (206) 547-2630 for tickets.
