PBS Newshour: Land Of The Free, Home Of The Poor

A stunning description of inequality in the US. There's an 11-minute video below and an accompanying transcript.

Those 3 pie charts? I would never have guessed we were the one on the bottom.

Watch the full episode. See more PBS NewsHour.

I heard on the news the other night that we're something like 64th in the world down the list vis-a-vis income inequality. Down there w/ some of the really poverty-stricken, dictator-run African countries. We are increasingly becoming a corporatocracy, which is not something *I* signed up for!
