“The Divide: American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap” March 1, 2015

Transition Newburyport hosts a discussion group with a focus on books that examine the climate, energy and economic challenges facing us and how we might respond to them. The book for our March 1st meeting is NYT Bestseller —The Divide: American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap by Matt Taibbi.

 “Readers with high blood pressure should make sure they’ve taken their medication before reading this devastating account of inequality in our justice, immigration, and social service systems. Taibbi’s chapters are high-definition photographs contrasting the ways we pursue small-time corruption and essentially reward high-level versions of the same thing.”
