The Pitchforks Are Coming For Us Plutocrats. to the trickle-down economics worldview that has become economic orthodoxy across party lines—and has so screwed the American middle class and Author: Nick Hanauer.   Associate Professor Tim Kuhner will present his new book, Democracy by the People: Reforming Campaign Finance in America (co-edited with Eugene Mazo and published in by Cambridge University Press). In order to introduce the topic of campaign finance reform, Tim will give a lecture entitled “The Third Coming of American Plutocracy.”.

This is why American plutocracy, which believes it can hold onto lost (bloody) glory, has so much contempt for the man, while tens of millions of Americans deem him one of the most decent, honest, and principled politicians in the entire history of the country. America faces daunting problems—stagnant wages, high health care costs, neglected schools, deteriorating public services. Yet the government consistently ignores the needs of its citizens, paying attention instead to donors and organized interests. Real issues are held hostage to demagoguery, partisanship beats practicality, and trust in government withers along with the social safety net.
