Reading Politics with the New Republic: The Rigged Game

In this new series, Symphony Space collaborates with the award-winning magazine to bring together some of today’s most ambitious journalists, trenchant thinkers, and innovative storytellers to tackle some of our most critical issues.

America was built on the idea that those who work hard can achieve great success. But what happens to the people who don’t win in this new economy? Is the new elite fueling inequality, widening the gap between rich and poor, locking a new class system into place–and getting burned out itself in the process? We tackle these questions with authors Daniel Markovits, Barbara Ehrenreich, civil rights advocate Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw, and social commentator Fran Lebowitz. Moderated by TNR contributor Sarah Leonard.
