Wednesday Political Periscope
The widening wealth gap between whites and minorities has wiped out gains made over the last 30 years and could foreshadow even more inequality if something isn't done to address it. We’ll examine the social, economic and political implications of the economic disparities revealed in the Pew Foundation’s new report with New York Times visual op/ed columnist Charles Blow. Then – joined by Thomas Frank of Harper’s Magazine – we’ll tackle the debt ceiling debate and the viability of “extreme” candidates in next year’s presidential election.
