    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.

    I haven't posted a review before but I needed to compliment reader Ray Porter. The book itself is great but his reading makes it even better. He brings the perfect amount of performance into the book despite it being non-fiction. He's never over the top or distracting but he helps the best lines land with emotional force. I've listened to around 100 audiobooks in the last several years and this is the best reading I've heard. Great, great, great job.
