Sam Pizzigati, Associate Fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies, discusses his new book, “The Rich Don’t Always Win: The Forgotten Triumph Over Plutocracy That Created the American Middle Class, 1900-1970.”
In The Rich Don’t Always Win, Pizzigati examines how average Americans took down plutocracy in the middle of the 20th century and how we can emulate their success and harness today’s simmering discontent to return America to the stability that comes with a more equal distribution of wealth. Barbara Ehrenreich calls The Rich Don’t Always Win a “lively, engrossing new book” that deserves a spot “on your bookshelf right next to Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States.”
