    Poverty goes up. Crime goes down. The prison population doubles. Fraud by the rich wipes out 40 percent of the world’s wealth. The rich get massively richer. No one goes to jail. In search of a solution, journalist Matt Taibbi discovered the Divide, the seam in American life where our two most troubling trends - growing wealth inequality and mass incarceration - come together, driven by a dramatic shift in American citizenship: Our basic rights are now determined by our wealth or poverty.

    What did you love best about The Divide?

    Love the journalistic tone of Taibbi's works. He puts you inside the story. Like Griftopia The Divide shows the hypocrisy without trying to explain, qualify or apologize for it. He lays out the facts and leaves the opinion up to you.


    What other book might you compare The Divide to and why?

    Blackwater by Jeremy Scahill


    If you could give The Divide a new subtitle, what would it be?

    How to succumb to business without really trying
