" is what happens at the bottom that matters most..."
This book manages to be chock full of research and still totally accessible. It tells the powerful story of how income inequality leads to increased violent crime, worse health, higher teenage pregnancy and mental illness. Today's CEO's earn 500 times their average employee, and this discrepancy affects all of us. A must read!
