The Crisis of the Middle-Class Constitution
Professor Ganesh Sitaraman talked about his book The Crisis of the Middle-Class Constitution: Why Economic Inequality Threatens Our Republic, in which he says that the Founders didn’t address the threat of income inequality in America because they lived during a time of relative economic equality and a solid middle class. He argues that today they would support amending the Constitution to address the problem. close
