To put that into context, research cited in the Harvard Business Review found that U.S. CEO’s earn 350 times what the average worker earns, and the three wealthiest men in the U.S. control more resources than the bottom half of American earners, a total of 160 million people. How did we get here, and is there a path out? We talk with Marjorie Kelly, co author with Ted Howard, of The Making of a Democratic Economy- Building Prosperity for the Many, not Just the Few.
