Populist Dialogues - 18-04 - The Middle Class Disappears while the Poor Get Poorer and the Rich get Richer and Richer

This episode is currently not viewable online.

We talk with Juan Carlos Ordonez, Communications Director with Oregon Center for Public Policy, about the growing income and wealth gaps between the top 1 and 1/10th percent and the rest of us. As a result of policy decisions in the halls of Congress and our state legislatures, the gap has been growing for the past 40 years. The decline of unions and disinvestment are also major factors. The recent Trump tax ''reform'' makes it even worse.
