We live in the richest country in the history of the world, but that reality means little because much of that wealth is controlled by a tiny handful of individuals, while more than 40 million Americans live in poverty. The issue of wealth and income inequality is the great moral issue of our time, it is the great economic issue of our time, and it is the great political issue of our time.
Beginning at 7:00 pm ET on March 19, Sen. Bernie Sanders will host a live town hall event on the rise of the oligarchy and the collapse of the American middle class. Sanders will speak with director Michael Moore, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, economist Darrick Hamilton and other guests about the 40-year decline of the middle class and possible solutions to the growing crisis of income and wealth inequality in America. Free Speech TV is proud to carry a live digital broadcast of this important event.
