Summary
"As this book will show, economic inequality has been a persistent, detrimental feature, in the United States since its founding, although the extent of the exploitation has changed over time. At the same time, a critique of inequality has also been ubiquitous, growing louder during some periods (the Depression years, for example) and more muted in others. Cyclically, the topic of inequality in the United States has emerged again in the twenty-first century. The New York Times in 2005 ran a series of articles on class, pointing out for its readership that, contrary to popular belief, the United States is not the most upwardly mobile country in the world"--
