Economic Apartheid in America looks at the causes and manifestations of income and wealth disparities in the United States, including tax policy, corporate scandals, and the economic policies and power shifts that have fueled the growing divide. Focusing on the decline of organized labor and civic institutions, the battles over global trade, and the growing inequality of income and wages, Economic Apartheid in America argues that most Americans are shut out of the discussion of the rules governing their economic lives.

Accessible and engaging, illustrated throughout with charts, graphs, and political cartoons, the book lays out a comprehensive plan for action.

"Terse, shocking, and richly documented, Economic Apartheid in America is both an indispensable resource and a call to arms!"
—Barbara Ehrenreich, author, Nickle and Dimed
