Summary In the richest nation on earth, people are mired in poverty. Food is produced on a vast scale, yet families go hungry. A deep-rooted cause of this inequality, the author reveals, lies in an injustice that permeates the economic system of America and the world, an injustice that is as unquestioned today as slavery once was.
