Minnesota Public Radio (MPR)


On Minnesota Public Radio’s Midday, Yale Political Science Professor Jacob Hacker discusses his book, “Winner Takes All Politics: How Washington Made the Rich Richer — and Turned Its Back on the Middle Class,” at the University of Minnesota Hubert H. Humphrey Institute for Public Policy. There are a number of great points in the discussion. Hacker provides a clear picture of how the situation in Washington has become so pro-corporate, beginning with the organization of right-wing political groups in the 1970s and he offers a glimpse to the great world we could create if we reorient Washington’s priorities to serve the public rather than the few.
