The pandemic has brought with it financial and emotional stress for tens of millions of Americans. Will the global health crisis cement what Professor Katharina Pistor calls “feudal type of levels of economic inequality,” or will it be an opportunity to reshape wealth distribution in the United States?
In the first episode of Beyond “Unprecedented,” host Eric Talley welcomes Pistor and Professor Michael Graetz, both authors of recent books that examine the foundations of economic inequality, to discuss how U.S. law and public policy favor the wealthy at the expense of the majority of the workforce (employed and unemployed) and potential remedies to create a more just economy.
