Sam Pizzigati is an Associate Fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies and co-editor of Inequality.org.
"Sam Pizzigati brilliantly explains how high taxation of the very rich dissuaded them from exploiting the rest of us so much in the past, how we lost that protection, and what we need to do to win it back today. A work of genius." Danny Dorling, University of Oxford "Pizzigati raises an urgent question: How long can we endure the burden of the super rich, who suppress the wages of the majority, drive up the costs of everything, and concentrate political power in their own hands? Fortunately he has an answer, and it cries out for enactment." Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed
