Setup Email Reminder
The vast majority of American—71 percent—believe the economy is rigged in favor of the rich. Guess what? They’re right! And Morris Pearl and Erica Payne would know—they’re some of America’s wealthiest “class traitors,” and they join us to take us on an engaging and enlightening insider’s tour of the nation’s tax code, which is where they say everything starts.
With insight from their book Tax the Rich!: How Lies, Loopholes, and Lobbyists Make the Rich Even Richer, Pearl and Payne explain exactly how “the rich”–and the politicians they control–manipulate the tax code to ensure the rich get richer, and everyone else is left holding the bag. Founders of the Patriotic Millionaires, they unapologetically dismantle the justifications for a tax code that virtually guarantees destabilizing levels of inequality and consequent social unrest. They make a complicated subject accessible and illuminate the practical reforms that they contend will put America on the road to stability and shared prosperity before it’s too late. Don’t miss this powerfully persuasive and entertaining guide to the most effective way to un-rig the economy.
