Rising Up With Sonali

Rising Up With Sonali – December 18, 2017

As part of our one-hour special on the US economy, well turn to David Dayen first. The 2008 subprime mortgage crisis highlighted all the ways in which big banks hurt ordinary Americans. Investigative reporter Dayen will identify how this legacy continues – he has written about how JP Morgan Chase used other people’s money to pay down its settlement with the government. Then acclaimed economist and author Nomi Prins will explain how Donald Trump is running the country, not just like it’s a business, but like it’s his business. And finally journalist Jessica Bruder will discuss her fascinating book called Nomadland: Surviving America In the Twenty First Century, about a growing trend of American retirees living on the road and driving to where the work is.

Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
