Pity the Billionaire
Best-selling author Thomas Frank will discuss his new book Pity the Billionaire: The Hard Times Swindle and the Unlikely Resurgence of the American Right. Frank set out in 2009 to research expressions of American discontent after the financial collapse — and he found the Tea Party. A frank discussion on why this recession led to "loud demands that the economic system be made even harsher on the recession's victims and that society's traditional winners be given even grander shares."
