What the 1% Don't Want You to Know

Season 3 Episode 15 | 24m 50s

Bill talks with economist Paul Krugman about a new book that's the talk of academia, Capital in the Twenty-First Century, by Thomas Piketty. It shows that two-thirds of America's increase in income inequality over the past four decades results from steep raises given to the country's highest earners. Krugman says: "We’re becoming very much the kind of society we imagined we're nothing like."
