The trend of rising inequality in our country shows no end in sight. What can be done to reverse extreme inequality in the United States? What is possible in this age of tax cuts for the wealthy? Would putting a cap on earnings be an effective and practical solution? Two experts with new books bring fresh ideas to the topic: Chuck Collins, author of Is Inequality in America Irreversible? and Sam Pizzigati, author of The Case for a Maximum Wage. They join a discussion with Janet Gornick, professor of political science and sociology and director of the Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality at The Graduate Center.

Presented with the Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality and the Institute for Policy Studies.
